Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma recognized by the expression of the CD30 marker and by its morphology. We report an unusual case of ALCL in a 42-year-old woman. For ten years the patient only had pruritic erythematous skin lesions, then a plaque with nodules and ulcers on the right thigh and leg developed, followed by ichthyosis acquisita. The development of ALCL in women and the association of ichthyosis acquisita with this type of lymphoma are uncommon.
