Hypopigmented mycosis fungoides (a cutaneous T-cell lymphoma variant) most commonly occurs in individuals of African descent. However, it has also been reported in persons of Asian and Hispanic descent. Of the different types of fungoides, hypopigmented mycosis fungoides is the most common in pediatric patients. Histologically, identification may be difficult, and the condition may only be diagnosed after more than one skin biopsy is taken. The most common treatment is phototherapy. The prognosis is good, but recurrences are expected.
