nevus sebaceus: An unusual presentation.
cytotoxic T- cell lymphoma Subcutaneous + + N/A Only subcutis panniculitis- involved; like T-cell associated with lymphoma autoimmune disorders (nearly 20%); lobular infiltration with septal sparing, adipocyte rimming; necrosis and granulomas common CD8 variants of CD4 or null cutaneous lymphomas Mycosis + -/+ -/+ Pautrier fungoides, microabscesses, cytotoxic intraepidermal vesiculation, cerebriform

On examination, there were multiple, well-defined, dark brown skin coloured, nontender, compressible, soft papules and nodules coalescing to form cerebriform
plaques present over left side of back involving the T7, T8, T9 dermatomes of size 10 X 6 cm.
The mass had a cerebriform
appearance, resembling a 'brain-within-a-brain' architecture.
globosa, however we did not observe the characteristic cerebriform
colony morphology for this species.
To the best of our knowledge, an intraparenchymal meningioma with a cerebriform
pattern has never been reported.
Though cutis verticis gyrata was coined by Unna in 1907 for cerebriform
appearance of the skin Fisher (1922) provided etiopathological details of the disorder.
Skin biopsy from bilateral thighs and right groin at an outside institution in October 2011 displayed dense, predominantly small to medium-sized atypical lymphoid infiltrate with cerebriform
nuclei and scant cytoplasm that mainly involved the dermis with minimal epidermotropism and focal Pautrier's microabscess formation.
They grow on ordinary Sabouraud- dextrose agar as yeast with cream-colored cerebriform
On first examination of the patient, we noticed that the right buttock resembled a cerebriform
It is usually dense and composed of atypical mononuclear cells with a cerebriform
nucleus (1), (7), (9).
This finding is in agreement with the EORTC classification, (13) which concluded that the presence of single or clusters of medium to large sized cerebriform
cells in the epidermis or dermis is the single most useful histologic criterion for establishing a diagnosis of early MF.
