Answer

Sézary syndrome therapy is based on disease burden and rapidity of progression. [20] Preserve immune response to prevent infection, use immunomodulatory therapy before chemotherapy (unless disease burden or therapeutic failure requires otherwise), and consider combination therapy over monotherapy, particularly systemic immunomodulatory therapy plus skin-directed treatments.
