Abstract

Numerous clinicopathological variants of mycosis fungoides have been described in the literature. Dermatomal or zosteriform mycosis fungoides is one reported variant but a clear aetiology has never been documented. We report a case of mycosis fungoides proved by biopsy and immunohistochemistry that developed in a 55-year-old man at the site of previous herpes zoster eruption. We also present a review of the relevant literature to add to the understanding of rare variants of mycosis fungoides and aid in the clinical recognition of zosteriform mycosis fungoides.
