Figure 2: Composite image of mycosis fungoides: Skin biopsy (a) showing variable acanthosis of epidermis with an upper dermal infiltrate (b) (H and E). A closer view showing the presence of atypical lymphoid cells having irregular nuclear contour and dark chromatin (c). Similar cells are seen show epidermotropism (d). These atypical lymphoid cells are positive for CD3 (e), while being negative for CD20 (f). These CD3 lymphoid cells are predominantly CD4 (g), positive with retained expression of CD2 (h), and loss of CD7 (i). CD: Cluster differentiation
