[Cutaneous lymphoma in Actas Dermo-Sifiliográficas: a historical perspective]

Actas Dermosifiliogr. 2010 Jun;101(5):411-4.
[Article in Spanish]


This article reviews the history of cutaneous lymphomas through the articles published on this subject in the journal Actas Dermo-Sifiliográficas. Approximately 100 years after Alibert published the first description of a patient with mycosis fungoides in 1806, reports of cutaneous lymphoma cases began to appear in Actas. These articles reflect how the definition, classification, and treatment of this disease, which continues to pose a challenge for dermatology, have evolved over the 100-year lifespan of the journal.
