ABSTRACT: We report an unusual case of localized cutaneous nodules heralding the recurrence of systemic CD30+ anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL). A 47-year-old woman developed numerous violaceous nodules in the perineal and upper thigh area 3 years after multimodal treatment and complete remission of primary anaplastic large-cell CD30+ lymphoma. Using immunohistochemical and T-cell gene rearrangement analysis, a recurrence of her anaplastic large-cell lymphoma was diagnosed.
