Diagnostic Considerations

Also consider the following:

  • Papular drug eruption
  • Papular variant of MF
  • Pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (Mucha-Habermann disease) [22, 23]
  • Primary or secondary cutaneous B-cell lymphoma
  • Primary or secondary cutaneous HD
  • Hydroa-vacciniforme–like primary cutaneous T-cell lymphoma

Treatments reportedly associated with lymphomatoid papulosis include allogenic stem cell transplantation, minocycline therapy, and efalizumab. [24, 25, 26]
