ABSTRACTSezary syndrome (SS) and mycosis fungoides (MF) are a group of non Hodgkin lymphomas that originate from T-lymphocytes and involve mostly the skin. These entities are generally non treatable and patient prognosis remains poor even with the advent of current treatment schedules. Complete remissions are seldom observed. For this reason, bone marrow transplant has been used as a treatment option. The high mortality associated with this procedure has turned reduced intensity conditioning stem cell transplant into a treatment option. This case study illustrates how stem cell transplant offers complete remission of this type of lymphomas.
