Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common type of primary non-Hodgkin cutaneous T-cell lymphoma and typically presents with a patch or plaque lesion with variable progression to tumors and extracutaneous involvement. Epidemiological studies have indicated that patients with MF are at a high risk for the development of secondary lymphomas.

However, although some of these studies have reported an increased risk for NHL, Hodgkin disease (HD) remains the most common type of secondary lymphoma in patients with MF in other studies.

In this report, we describe a 76-year-old male patient with MF (stage IA) who was concomitantly diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). Histopathologic and immunophenotypic features as well as cyclin D1 oncogene and chromosomal aberrations were subsequently identified. Keywords : Aged; Mycosis Fungoides; Lymphoma, Mantle-Cell
