Mycosis fungoides is a condition in which the skin is infiltrated by patches or lumps composed of white cells called lymphocytes. It is more common in men than women and is very rare in children. Its cause is unknown but in some patients it is associated with a pre-existing contact allergic dermatitis or infection with a retrovirus.
Mycosis fungoides has an indolent (low-grade) clinical course, which means that it may persist in one stage or over years or sometimes decades, slowly progress to another stage (from patches to thicker plaques and eventually to tumours).
