Abstract

Sezary syndrome is a subtype of cutaneous T cell lymphoma which usually presents as generalized skin disease with erytheroderma. Distal organ involvement is rare and is usually a late finding in the course of the disease. Breast involvement is extremely rare. Herein, we present a case report of a patient whose initial presentation involved an intramammary lymph node prior to the onset of more characteristic skin disease. Sezary syndrome was confirmed by cythopathologic findings.
