[Association of mycosis fungoides and Hodgkin's disease].

[Article in French]


A 69-year-old man developed a Hodgkin's disease 2 years after he started a mycosis fungoides. He presented cutaneous plaques of mycosis fungoides. The first signs of Hodgkin's disease was acquired ichthyosis and loss of weight. Echotomography of the abdomen showed retroperitoneal nodes. A laparotomy was performed and the histopathologic examination of the lymph nodes revealed a Hodgkin's disease type 2 (sclero-nodular). The liver and the bone marrow were involved. A chemotherapy was completed but the patient died 10 months later. The review of the literature showed 24 patients with Hodgkin's disease and mycosis fungoides or S├ęzary syndrome. Relation between mycosis fungoides, Hodgkin's disease and lymphomatoid papulosis are discussed.
