Answer

In the United States, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma is more common among persons of sub - Saharan African lineage than among those of European background, in a ratio of approximately 2:1. In Kuwait, a study found that the annual incidence rate of mycosis fungoides was significantly higher among Arabs than among non-Arab Asians. [43]
