Comments:
Epidemiology: Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common cutaneous T-cell lymphoma and also makes up almost 50% of all primary cutaneous lymphomas. Most cases affect adult and elderly patients (median age at diagnosis 55-60 years), but it can also be seen in adolescents and young adults. There is male predominance with M:F ratio of 2:1. It is slightly more common in blacks and is seen less often in Asians and Hispanics. Higher risk of MF has been associated with certain professions/industries, including farming, painting, woodworking, carpentry, textiles, petrochemicals and metal industries.
