Mycosis fungoides (MF) can present with purpuric lesions, and rare patients who seemed to have persistent pigmented purpuric dermatitis (PPPD) have developed MF. We recently encountered two patients referred to our cutaneous lymphoma clinic who had PPPD rather than MF and two others who appeared to have both conditions, leading us to explore the histologic similarities of these diseases. We examined specimens from 56 patients with PPPD to determine the frequency of MF-like histologic… CONTINUE READING
