Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma

Dear Doctor

Hello, I have had this dry patch of skin since I was 7 … i am now 28… it is getting larger in size over the years and now has a dark ring around it.

I was always told it’s eczema, but it never goes away..

Have you ever seen anything like this patch??

Thank you for your time!

Dear Patient

One of the worst things that this patch can be is a type of skin cancer known as Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma (CTLC).

I therefore recommend that you go to your nearest dermatologist and have a skin biopsy done as soon as possible.

I have seen cases like this of patients who were treated for years for non-improving eczema which later turned out to be CTLC.
