Abstract

Primary cutaneous aggressive epidermotropic CD8+ cytotoxic T-cell lymphoma is a rare and provisional entity, characterised by cutaneous involvement and aggressive clinical behaviour. The case is here presented of a young woman with concurrent cutaneous and systemic involvement. Despite multi-agent chemotherapy, only partial remission could be achieved, and the patient died from therapy-resistant respiratory and circulatory failure. This case report is intended to add to the data collected on this rare entity, with only about 20 cases as yet described.
