abstract

  • EBV-associated cutaneous B-cell lymphoma is characterized by a long interval between the initiation of immunosuppression and the development of lymphoma. Although previous reports have reported an indolent clinical course, an aggressive clinical course may occur. HHV8 and lytic phase EBV antigens are detected in some cases, possibly suggesting a pathogenetic role.
