• Lennert's lymphoma is a fairly distinct clinicopathologic entity that may rarely involve the skin. Patients tend to be elderly women with prominent cervical adenopathy; they often have a rapidly fatal disease course. We describe here an 85-year-old woman with lymphadenopathy and erythematous cutaneous nodules who had malignant lymphohistiocytic infiltrates in both her skin and lymph nodes, with a high concentration of epithelioid histiocytes in the latter.
