Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma

Common Name(s)

Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma

Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs) are a group of disorders characterized by an abnormal accumulation of cancerous T-cells (a type of white blood cells) in the skin resulting in an itchy, red rash that can thicken or form a tumor. CTCLs belong to a larger group of disorders known asnon-Hodgkin's lymphomas. The most common types are mycosis fungoides and SŽzary syndrome. In some cases, cancerous T-cells may spread to the lymph nodes and eventually to other body tissues and organs, potentially resulting in life-threatening complications. The specific signs and symptoms vary from person to person. The exact cause of these conditions is unknown.

Total Skin Electron Beam Therapy as Part of Multimodal Treatment Strategies for Primary Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma.
 

Author(s): Khaled Elsayad, Katharina H Susek, Hans T Eich

Journal: Oncol Res Treat. 2017 ;40(5):244-252.

 

Total-skin electron beam therapy (TSEBT) is one of most effective treatments that has been used for cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Low-dose TSEBT regimens (10-12 Gy) appear to be an effective alternative to conventional-dose TSEBT (30-36 Gy), yielding short-term remission of cutaneous ...
