Skin in mycosis fungoides cancer. Close-up of skin lesions on the back of a 60-year-old male patient with stage 3 mycosis fungoides (cutaneous lymphoma). Mycosis fungoides is a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a rare cancer of the lymphoid tissue that primarily affects the skin. The disease progresses from itchy dermal patches to purple-coloured tumours, which eventually ulcerate. Severe cases of mycosis fungoides are fatal, although remission may be gained with anticancer drugs. Despite the name it does not involve fungal infection. The cause of the disease is unknown.
