Results: Out of 82 patients, males were 48 and females were 34. Type of lesions were mycosis fungoides in 42, adult T-cell lymphoma/leukemia in 30 and peripheral T-cell lymphoma in 10 patients. Type of lesions were macules in 16, papules in 20, plaques in 22, macules & papules in 10, papules & plaques in 4, pustules and nodules in 6, plaques and nodules in 4 cases. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Type of lesions were mycosis fungoides, adult T-cell lymphoma/leukemia and peripheral T-cell lymphoma in 10 patients. Type of lesions were macules, papules, plaques, macules & papules.
