I was pleasantly surprised to learn about 3 new publications on the esoteric subject of cutaneous lymphomas. I am glad to see an awakening in the interest of publishers in a subject that had been long neglected. Historically, releases of books on cutaneous lymphomas have been few and far apart, owing not only to the rarity of these conditions but also because for years we had more questions than answers. These publications appear at a special time when we are witnessing major advances in our understanding of the nature of cutaneous lymphomas. Such progress has resulted in a new and more precise classification of cutaneous lymphomas, and our modern understanding of its pathomechanism has also resulted in more rational and effective therapeutic approaches.
