† Mycosis fungoides developed in two patients with Hodgkin's disease, diagnosed 13 years previously. One patient had the nodular sclerosis type of Hodgkin's disease, and the other had a lymphocyte predominant type. Although mycosis fungoides of the skin has been reported to evolve into various lymphomas, Hodgkin's disease followed by cutaneous mycosis fungoides appears to be rare.
