Syringotropic cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) is a rare form of CTCL characterized histologically by infiltrates of atypical lymphocytes located primarily in and around hyperplastic eccrine glands and ducts. Currently, syringotropic CTCL is classified as a histopathologic variant of folliculotropic mycosis fungoides (MF); however, the relationship between these two entities remains tenuous. We report two additional cases of syringotropic CTCL and review the differences between these two subtypes of MF with regard to epidemiology, clinical features, prognosis, and treatment. Based on these data, we conclude that syringotropic CTCL should be classified as a distinct variant of MF separate from folliculotropic MF.
