Extracutaneous spreading with fatal outcome of mycosis fungoides in a patient treated with ciclosporin A: a word of caution.


A patient with mycosis fungoides in the tumor stage was treated with ciclosporin A orally in daily doses of 5 mg/kg body weight for 5 weeks. Three weeks after cessation of treatment the patient died with dissemination of the cutaneous lymphoma to the lungs, myocardium, liver, pancreas, kidneys, adrenals, and stomach. Treatment with ciclosporin A may have contributed to the death of this patient.
