Lymphomatoid papulosis: This is a chronic, recurrent skin disease characterized by spontaneously regressing papules composed of an atypical CD30-positive T-cell population. The disease is defined as an atypical lymphoproliferative process and usually has a benign course. However, a minority of cases are clonal and can progress to frank lymphoma. Low dose methotrexate and psoralen/UVA (PUVA) are the best available therapies. (WHO, 2001) -- 2003

Lymphomatoid papulosis: Clinically benign, histologically malignant, recurrent cutaneous eruption characterized by an infiltration of large atypical cells surrounded by inflammatory cells. The atypical cells resemble Reed-Sternberg cells of Hodgkin's disease or the malignant cells of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. In some cases, lymphomatoid papulosis progresses to lymphomatous conditions including mycosis fungoides, Hodgkin's disease, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, or Ki-1 lymphoma.
