Abstract

Regressing atypical histiocytosis may clinically resemble some benign dermatoses. Recent evaluation of these cases has shown that many represent a form of Ki-1-positive anaplastic large-cell lymphoma. Multiple skin biopsy specimens with immunophenotyping and gene rearrangement studies are required to arrive at the diagnosis.
