Answer

The prognosis associated with folliculotropic mycosis fungoides is worse than that for classic patch- and plaque-stage mycosis fungoides and corresponds more closely with tumor-stage disease (stage IIB). For this reason, some authors have proposed that the disorder be staged with tumor-stage disease (stage IIB). Folliculotropic mycosis fungoides reportedly has a disease-specific 5-year survival rate of approximately 70-80%. [50]
