Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, which typically presents with erythematous patches and plaques, histopathologically characterized by superficial infiltrates of small to medium-sized atypical epidermotropic T cells. Apart from this classic type of MF, many clinical and/or histopathologic variants have been described. Correct diagnosis of these MF variants is important, but may be difficult, because they may mimic a wide variety of inflammatory skin diseases. In this review, clinical and histopathologic characteristics of distinct variants of MF are presented, and their differential diagnosis and therapeutic options are discussed.
