Abstract

We describe a 34-year-old Japanese man with syringotropic CD8+ mycosis fungoides (MF) accompanied by hypohidrosis who was treated with vorinostat and retinoids. Interestingly, immunohistochemical staining for dermcidin revealed a decrease of sweat in the eccrine glands, and a sweat test by the iodine starch method proved hypohidrosis in the MF-affected areas. Six months after treatment with this combination therapy, the patient's advanced MF was under control.
