Mycosis fungoides (MF) is a rare disease and is considered the most common form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Given the infrequent incidence of MF in patients under the age of 20, there are no established guidelines for the treatment of these patients; the overwhelming majority have an early-stage disease and progression to more advanced stages is very rare. This study presents the safety and effectiveness of photo-photochemotherapy as a first-line approach in the treatment of an early-stage MF even in young patients.
