Abstract

Although lymph node pseudolymphomas induced by phenytoin are well known, few cases of hydantoin-induced mycosis fungoides have been reported in the literature. We present herein the first case of a Sézary-like syndrome associated with phenytoin therapy. Such a patient must be monitored regularly because of the risk of a true malignant lymphoma developing even many years later.
