Agminated Lymphomatoid Papulosis: A Distinct Entity or a Localized Form?
We report a case of a 34-year-old female with asymptomatic and recurrent erythematous papules localized exclusively in her left forearm, for three years. Histopathology showed a predominantly lymphocytic inflammatory infiltrate, with scattered pleomorphic CD30+ cells and occasional mitotic figures. These findings are consistent with agminated lymphomatoid papulosis considered by some authors as a distinct entity, although we believe it represents a rare presentation of lymphomatoid papulosis.
