This case report describes an occurrence of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma misdiagnosed as lipodermatosclerosis.
Herein, we describe an obese woman with a 2-year history of a persistent indurated plaque on the right calf misdiagnosed as lipodermatosclerosis, while the true diagnosis was mycosis fungoides (MF). To our knowledge, there have been no other cases of MF mimicking lipodermatosclerosis reported.
