Lymphomatoid Papulosis: A Case Report.

Nidal Obaidat, Anwar Masri, Ahlam Awamleh


A 23-year-old female presented with recurring papulo-nodular erythematous eruption, mainly on the extremities, since the age of 2. Histological examination of a representative lesion showed morphologic and immunohistochemical features of lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP). This is a distinctive and very rare type of cutaneous lymphoproliferative disorder, which has an apparently malignant histology, but clinically behaving in a benign fashion. LyP might accompany or precede the development of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma or systemic Hodgkin’s disease. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of LyP to be published from Jordan.
