• Skeletal lesions that were clinically significant and roentgenographically demonstrable developed in a patient with mycosis fungoides. Biopsy specimens from skin plaques and tumors and from a tibial tumor mass revealed an infiltrate of similar-appearing cells that were compatible with mycosis cells. Bone marrow involvement is not unusual in patients with mycosis fungoides with extracutaneous disease, but destruction of cortical bone in mycosis fungoides, as demonstrated by the patient in this report, is rare.
