Cutaneous B-cell and T-cell lymphomas are distinct subtypes of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). They are cancers of lymphocytes that primarily involve the skin, the most common single-organ location of extranodal NHL (Groves et al., J Natl Cancer Inst. 2000;92(15):1240–1251). Cutaneous lymphomas may remain limited to the skin for long periods of time but can spread to blood, lymph nodes, and viscera in cases of advanced disease. Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL), involving malignant clonal T cells that present primarily in the skin, comprise more than 75% of all primary cutaneous lymphomas (Willemze et al., Blood. 2005;105(10):3768–3785). CTCL includes variants with indolent, aggressive, and variable clinical behavior, with mycosis fungoides (MF) and Sézary syndrome (SS) together comprising more than 50% of all CTCLs (Willemze et al., Blood. 2005;105(10):3768–3785). The second most common type of CTCL, CD30+ lymphoproliferative disorders, comprises 20% of all cutaneous lymphomas. Cutaneous B-cell lymphoma (CBCL) is less common and often presents as indolent disease.
