BACKGROUND Regressing atypical histiocytosis is a rare multifocal cutaneous tumor characterized by large, spontaneously regressing, ulcerating skin nodules. Although initially self-remitting, the condition may progress to systemic lymphoma. METHODS Using material from one patient, an attempt was made to clarify the nature of this condition with immunophenotyping, genotyping, and chromosome studies. RESULTS Immunophenotyping studies indicated the condition was of T-cell lineage, although T… CONTINUE READING
