Abstract

Syringotropic cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (SCTCL) is a variant of mycosis fungoides that is characterized by the presence of lymphocytic infiltration of eccrine glandular structures and the absence of the classic features of MF, such as epidermotropism and Pautrier's microabscesses. We report a patient with SCTCL who presented with multiple hypopigmented patches and localized alopecia who was treated with local radiotherapy with excellent local control. In our experience, local electron radiation offers local control in early stage SCTCL, and it may be possible to reserve systemic therapy for more advanced stages of the disease.
