Mycosis fungoides (MF), the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, is histologically characterized by atypical T lymphocytes with cerebriform nuclei that infiltrate the epidermis. Alopecia can be a manifestation of mycosis fungoides (MF) but alopecia areata (AA) is not usually associated with MF. We present a case of hypopigmented erythematous MF and AA with a childhood onset.
