Saggy skin as a presenting sign of angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma

Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is a rare, aggressive form of peripheral T-cell lymphoma that has a variety of cutaneous manifestations. To our knowledge, saggy skin has not been documented as one of these manifestations. We report a case of a patient with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma presenting initially with pruritus and saggy skin, which later progressed into erythroderma despite chemotherapy; the disease eventually resolved with autologous stem cell transplant. Appreciating the cutaneous manifestations of AITL may allow for earlier diagnosis and treatment.
