“…Psoralen plus ultraviolet A and long-wave ultraviolet A therapy. A recent report showed good results in a patient with lymphocytoma cutis (Spiegler-Fendt sarcoid) after therapy with 13 sessions of psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA) and 5 sessions of intralesional triamcinolone (56). In another case, PUVA was the therapy of choice of a solitary T-cell pseudolymphoma of the breast (57).…”

[ 1 ] It is a pseudolympoma of B-lymphocytes affecting young adults with a female predilection (3:1)[ 2 ] and propensity for occurrence in caucasians.
