Abstract

Localized Lymphoblastoma (Spiegler-Fendt Type): Nodule on Forearm. Presented by DR. ORLANDO CANIZARES.

DISCUSSION

Dr. Arthur B. Kern (by invitation): Recently at Bellevue Hospital we studied a patient who, clinically and histologically during the early period of observation, was considered to show typical mycosis fungoides. Repeated biopsies, however, revealed a change in histologic structure to that of Spiegler-Fendt sarcoid. The patient soon started on a downhill course, and before death occurred a number of biopsies revealed a picture typical of reticulum cell sarcoma. This case points to a relation between mycosis fungoides, Spiegler-Fendt sarcoid and reticulum cell sarcoma. I should therefore like to suggest that Dr. Canizares' patient be watched carefully in case this lesion might be the type of Spiegler-Fendt sarcoid which will later show a change in structure to that of reticulum cell sarcoma.
