Abstract

Primary cutaneous follicle center lymphoma is an uncommon type of cutaneous lymphoma. Typically presenting as raised erythematous lesions on the head or trunk, it can clinically mimic many other conditions. When cutaneous lymphoma is identified, the presence of systemic follicular lymphoma must also be considered. We present and discuss a case of primary cutaneous follicle center lymphoma in a patient with a solitary erythematous papule on the nose.
