NAVARRETE-DECHENT, Cristián; MOLGO, Montserrat; SANDOVAL-OSSES, Mauricio  and  GONZALEZ, Sergio. Primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2015, vol.143, n.10, pp.1351-1355. ISSN 0034-9887.

Primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma (PCALCL) is within the spectrum of cutaneous CD30-positive lymphoproliferative disorders. It presents as localized or multifocal tumors or plaques and carries an excellent long-term prognosis even in cases with regional and/or ipsilateral lymph node involvement or in cases of recurrent disease. We report a 34 year-old female with a thigh lesion. Skin biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of PCALCL. The patient was strictly monitored but no treatment was instituted and the tumor regressed spontaneously. After 24 months of follow-up the patient remains free of disease without new lesions.

Keywords : Lymphoma; Primary Cutaneous Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma; Prognosis; Skin; Treatment.
