MYCOSIS FUNGOIDES, TUMOR STAGE, COEXISTENT WITH DISSEMINATED COCCIDIOIDOMYCOSIS

AMA Arch Derm. 1955;71(1):59-65. doi:10.1001/archderm.1955.01540250061012
Abstract

THE ASSOCIATION of lymphoblastomatous diseases with several varieties of superficial and deep mycoses has already been reported.*

A review of the literature failed to reveal the coexistence of a clear-cut case of mycosis fungoides with coccidioidomycosis. However, the case published by Wernicke 5 in 1892 and that of Zeisler 6 reported in 1932 were presumed to present such a combination. It is our opinion that the illustrations and the histologic descriptions of these cases were compatible with cutaneous coccidioidomycosis clinically resembling mycosis fungoides rather than true mycosis fungoides.

REPORT OF A CASE

R. L., a patient of one of us (O. B. M.), aged 46, a mechanical engineer from Tucson, Ariz., was admitted on May 15, 1952, to University Hospital for special studies and antimony treatments. He was born in Ohio but moved to Arizona in 1947. His general health was good except for bronchitis
