Like Comment
primary cutaneous anaplastic lymphomas (pcALCL) commonly present as solitary or grouped skin lesions and have a 5-year specific survival greater than 91% (1-3). One study showed that, in cases of extracutaneous extension, 5-year overall survival is 41% (4). At diagnosis some patients have skin and locoregional node involvement but their prognosis is as favorable as that of patients with lesions limited to the skin (1).
