Answer

This condition is more common in blacks than in whites (incidence ratio = 1.6), and it occurs more frequently in men than in women (male-to-female ratio, 2:1). The most common age at presentation is approximately 50 years; however, mycosis fungoides can also be diagnosed in children and adolescents and apparently has similar outcomes. [37]
