Bottom Line: Lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) is a chronic self-healing skin eruption that is clinically benign but histologically mimics a malignant lymphoma.We experienced a 60-year-old male patient with lymphomatoid papulosis occurred simultaneously with relapsed Ki-1-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma who was treated with salvage chemotherapy but, unfortunately, failed to be rescued.We report it with a review of the literature.

ABSTRACT
Lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) is a chronic self-healing skin eruption that is clinically benign but histologically mimics a malignant lymphoma. However, lymphomatoid papulosis with anaplastic large cell lymphoma responds poorly to medical treatments, including chemotherapies. We experienced a 60-year-old male patient with lymphomatoid papulosis occurred simultaneously with relapsed Ki-1-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma who was treated with salvage chemotherapy but, unfortunately, failed to be rescued. We report it with a review of the literature.

f2-kjim-12-1-84-16: Photograpy shows multiple pin head sized erythematous papules on anterior chest wall (Arrow heads).

Mentions: On admission, the temperature was 38.4°C, the pulse rate 85/min and the respiration rate 20/min. The blood pressure was 110/70mmHg. He had a chronic ill-looking appearance. The conjunctiva was pale and the sclera was not icteric. There were multiple small sized papulonodular eruptions on the anterior chest wall (Fig. 2). On examination of chest, crackles were heard on left lower lung field. Examinations of heart, abdomen and extremities were not remarkable. Enlargement of peripheral lymph nodes was not seen.
