Mycosis fungoides (MF) is a T-cell lymphoma that predominantly affects the skin. Involvement of the oral tissues in MF is rare. A case of MF with involvement of the maxillary gingiva and cervical lymph nodes is presented. Electron-beam radiation with 40 Gy and systemic chemotherapy with vincristine and interferon γ produced almost complete remission of the oral lesion while the persistent pain was relieved.
