Follicular mucinosis associated with mycosis fungoides.

We report a patient who developed erythematous indurated plaques with alopecia on the face and multiple well-demarcated infiltrated scaling lesions on the trunk and extremities. Skin biopsy showed a mucinous degeneration of the follicular outer root sheaths and sebaceous glands consistent with the diagnosis of follicular mucinosis. A histologic examination of a specimen from the left forearm showed microscopic changes of mycosis fungoides. The present case confirms the need of multiple skin biopsies in the evaluation of patients with follicular mucinosis.
