Use of polymerase chain reaction in the detection of clones in lymphoproliferative diseases of the skin.


Early-stage mycosis fungoides shows similar clinical symptoms and histological and immunophenotypical features to several benign lymphoproliferative skin disorders. We analyzed T cell receptor gamma gene rearrangement by polymerase chain reaction in the search for monoclonal lymphoid subpopulations in skin infiltrates. Totally, 283 skin biopsies (paraffin… (More)
