Abstract

Advanced stage mycosis fungoides (MF) generally has a poor prognosis, and currently there is no standard treatment available. Here we report the case of a young woman with recalcitrant tumour-stage MF (T3, stage IIb) whose disease was unresponsive to several therapeutic modalities, but who has showed sustained clinical response to pegylated liposomal doxorubucin. No severe infectious complications have been observed. The use of this drug in tumour-stage MF should be investigated further.
