Answer

In older children, mycosis fungoides (a form of T-cell lymphoma) often presents with hypopigmented patches associated with a dermatitis. This entity is being recognized with increased frequency as physicians become more aware of the disease, and it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between the 2 entities.
