Answer

Subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma (with a CD8+, alpha/beta+ T-cell phenotype) tends to have a protracted clinical course with recurrent subcutaneous nodules but without extracutaneous dissemination or the development of a hemophagocytic syndrome. [29] The 5-year survival rate for such patients may be greater than 80%.
