Identification of T Cells in Parapsoriasis InfiltratesUse of an Anti-human T-Cell Serum and the Immunoperoxidase Technique

Arch Dermatol. 1982;118(4):238-240. doi:10.1001/archderm.1982.01650160028016
Abstract

• "Parapsoriasis" is a term used to include a heterogeneous group of conditions, one variant of which, at least, eventuates in mycosis fungoides in a substantial percentage of cases. The T-cell origin of mycosis fungoides is well established. The lack of similar information on lymphoid cell types in parapsoriasis prompted an immunoperoxidase study using a specific antihuman T-cell serum in a group of seven patients with parapsoriasis. Our findings demonstrated a preponderantly T-cell infiltrate in the categories of parapsoriasis examined.
