Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Visceral involvement usually occurs in the late stages of mycosis fungoides (MF). Small bowel involvement in MF is uncommon. When involved, it could cause significant morbidity and mortality. In this study, the authors present an 89-year-old woman diagnosed with T1, N0, B1, M0; stage 1A MF, treated with topical temovate with good response who presented 3 months later with small bowel obstruction due to biopsy-proven localization of MF in the gastrointestinal tract.
