Carbamazepine-Induced, CD30+, Primary, Cutaneous, Anaplastic Large-Cell Lymphoma

Arch Dermatol. 2001;137(5):675-676. doi:

Anticonvulsant agents may cause nodal and extranodal lymphoproliferative disorders, including dermatopathic lymphadenitis, atypical lymphoid proliferation, and cutaneous pseudolymphoma.1 In most reported cases, regression follows the discontinuation of treatment with the causative drug, but in rare cases a true lymphoma may develop.2,3 Herein, we describe the clinicopathologic features of the first case of a CD30+, primary, cutaneous, anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) possibly correlated to carbamazepine administration.
