Sézary syndrome (SS) is a rare cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. SS usually develops de novo. We describe a 23-year-old man with a proven history of severe atopic dermatitis since childhood, who developed SS. This case contributes to the discussion about the possibility of a relationship between inflammatory dermatitis, atopy and subsequent SS. We provide criteria that should be fulfilled to define such an association.
