Bottom Line: Peripheral T cell lymphoma (PTCL) is a heterogeneous group of hematological tumors originating from mature T cells, which constitutes less than 15% of all non-Hodgkins lymphomas in adults.Primary cutaneous PTCL-not otherwise specified (NOS) represent a subgroup of PTCLs with no consistent immunophenotypic, genetic or clinical features.PTCL-NOS frequently has an aggressive course with a tendency for systemic involvement, however, a well-defined therapeutic and prognostic approach has not been outlined yet.

ABSTRACT
Peripheral T cell lymphoma (PTCL) is a heterogeneous group of hematological tumors originating from mature T cells, which constitutes less than 15% of all non-Hodgkins lymphomas in adults. Primary cutaneous PTCL-not otherwise specified (NOS) represent a subgroup of PTCLs with no consistent immunophenotypic, genetic or clinical features. PTCL-NOS frequently has an aggressive course with a tendency for systemic involvement, however, a well-defined therapeutic and prognostic approach has not been outlined yet. We report a case of PTCL-NOS with multiple cutaneous lesions in a young adult male with an emphasis on the treatment modality used.

Figure 2: Erythematous plaque with multiple areas of focal atrophy and scaling seen on the left upper arm

Mentions: On examination, patient appeared well-built with multiple erythematous papules and plaques scattered over the abdomen, back and proximal extremities. These papules and plaques were surmounted with large adherent white scales. The involved areas showed a loss of hair with focal areas of atrophy [Figures 1 and 2]. No lymphadenopathy, organomegaly were noted on palpation.
