Subcutaneous Panniculitis-Like T-Cell Lymphoma of the Cheek Mimicking a Lupus Erythematosus Panniculitis by Maouni Safae in Theranostics of Respiratory & Skin Diseases in Lupine Publishers

Subcutaneous Panniculitis-like T-lymphoma (SPTL) is a rare non-epidermotropic cutaneous T cell lymphoma, which perform 1% of all non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas. The lesions are usually localized in the upper limbs and the trunk. the localization on the cheeks is unusual. The diagnosis of SPTCL depends on the pathologic examination of skin biopsy, but the manifestations of SPTCL are varied and mimic autoimmune disorders. We report a case of a subcutaneous panniculitis-like t-cell lymphoma with an unusual localization in the cheek, mimicking a lupus erythematosus panniculitis, evolving since 2 years in a 40-year-old woman.
