Mycosis Fungoides - Symptoms & Treatment

It is a condition in which the skin is permeate by patches or lumps composed of white cells called lymphocytes. It is uncommon for the disease to appear before age 20, and it appears to be obviously more common in males than females, especially over the age of 50, where the incidence of the disease (the risk per person in the population) does increase. Mycosis fungoides has an apathetic (low-grade) clinical course, which means that it may persist in one stage or over years or sometimes decades, slowly progress to another stage (from patches to thicker plaques and eventually to tumours). The disorder may extend to other parts of the body including the gastrointestinal system, liver, spleen, or brain.

Common treatments consist of simple sunlight, ultraviolet light, topical steroids, local external radiotherapy, the histone deacetylase inhibitor vorinostat, total skin electron beam radiation, and biological therapies (e.g. interferons, retinoids, rexinoids). Photo chemotherapy or the photopheresis is a method used in the vital medical centers for the treatment of the fungoides of the micosis. The mustard of nitrogen, a drug of the chemotherapy, is useful to the skin to the fungoides of the micosis of the control every so often.
