Abstract

The authors present a rare case of co-existence of mycosis fungoides of fairly rapid progress and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) in a 73-year-old man. The diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties resulted from highly variable presentations and the complex relationship between the two cancers are reported in the context of multidisciplinary approach to this type of disorder.
