Primary cutaneous, composite, Epstein-Barr virus-associated, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and peripheral T-cell lymphoma.


Journal Article

T-cell lymphomas have a broad spectrum of cutaneous involvement. Several subtypes of T-cell lymphomas are associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-driven lymphoproliferative processes. We present a case of a composite, primary, cutaneous, EBV-associated, diffuse, large B-cell lymphoma and mature T-cell lymphoma occurring in a patient with Klinefelter karyotype (47, XXY). The patient had a characteristic clinical course of a systemic mature T-cell lymphoma before the presentation of the composite, primary, EBV-associated, diffuse, large B-cell lymphoma. Although similar cases have been described in extracutaneous locations, we believe that this is the first description with a primary cutaneous presentation.
