Answer

This condition presents with solitary or localized plaques or tumors in the face, neck, and/or upper trunk area. The disease typically has an indolent course, and solitary lesions may be treated with surgical excision or radiation. Histologically, dermal to subcutaneous infiltration with CD3, CD4+ malignant cells is seen, and focal epidermotropism may be seen.
