II. Pathophysiology

  1. T-Cell Lymphoma that begins in skin
  2. Sezary Syndrome is leukemic form of T-Cell Lymphoma

III. Epidemiology

  1. Incidence: 0.42 cases per 100,000 (rare)
  2. Most common after age 50 years
  3. Gender: Twice as common in men
  4. Black patients are more commonly affected

IV. Symptoms

V. Signs (four stages of development)

  1. Eczematous patches and Plaques
  2. Distributed over non-sun-exposed skin
    1. Buttocks
    2. Thighs
  3. Tumors develop later in course
    1. Associated with superficial and deep Lymphadenopathy
    2. Associated with metastases to Spleen, lung, GI Tract

VI. Complications

VII. Course

  1. Survival <3 years after tumors develop

Definition (NCI) A peripheral (mature) T-cell lymphoma presenting in the skin with patches/plaques. It is characterized by epidermal and dermal infiltration of small to medium-sized T-cells with cerebriform nuclei. Patients with limited disease generally have an excellent prognosis. In the more advanced stages, the prognosis is poor. (WHO, 2001)
Definition (NCI_NCI-GLOSS) A type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that first appears on the skin and can spread to the lymph nodes or other organs such as the spleen, liver, or lungs.
Definition (CSP) chronic malignant T-cell lymphoma of the skin; in the late stages the lymph nodes and viscera are affected.
Definition (MSH) A chronic, malignant T-cell lymphoma of the skin. In the late stages, the LYMPH NODES and viscera are affected.

Ontology: Sezary Syndrome (C0036920)

Definition (MSHCZE) Maligní lymfom z T buněk postihující primárně kůži s výskytem nádorových buněk rovněž v periferní krvi (někdy považován za generalizaci mycosis fungoides). Na kůži je svědící erytrodermie, hyperkeratóza, pigmentace, může být lymfadenopatie či splenomegalie. Objevují se Sézaryho-Lutznerovy buňky. Vyskytuje se obv. u starších osob s určitou převahou mužů, průběh bývá větš. chronický. Léčba je obdobná jako u mycosis fungoides. (cit. Velký lékařský slovník online, 2012 http://lekarske.slovniky.cz/ )
Definition (NCI) A generalized peripheral (mature) T-cell neoplasm characterized by the presence of erythroderma, lymphadenopathy, and neoplastic, cerebriform T-lymphocytes in the blood. Sezary syndrome is an aggressive disease. (WHO, 2001)
Definition (NCI_NCI-GLOSS) A form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, a cancerous disease that affects the skin.
Definition (MSH) A form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma manifested by generalized exfoliative ERYTHRODERMA; PRURITUS; peripheral lymphadenopathy, and abnormal hyperchromatic mononuclear (cerebriform) cells in the skin, LYMPH NODES, and peripheral blood (Sezary cells).
