Histopathologic examination of the biopsy specimens revealed a slightly acanthotic epidermis, with reticular fibroplasia of the papillary dermis. Intermediate-size lymphocytes with atypia were seen focally along the dermoepidermal junction. The eccrine coils were densely infiltrated with intermediate-size lymphocytes. Immunohistochemical analysis showed a CD4:CD8 ratio of greater than 10:1, and T-cell receptor gene rearrangement studies showed a positive T-cell clone. The diagnosis of syringotropic MF was made.
