A 50-year-old woman of Trinidadian descent presented with a 2-week history of asymptomatic, umbilicated, skin-colored facial papules. She had been diagnosed 2 years previously with human T-cell lymphotrophic virus type 1 (HTLV-1)–associated adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL). Since then, she had been treated with multiple chemotherapy regimens, but the only one eliciting a partial response was ICE (ifosfamide, carboplatin, and etoposide). However, she eventually experienced relapse, as confirmed by bone marrow biopsy.
