Answer

Poikilodermic mycosis fungoides occurs when poikiloderma (ie, poikiloderma vasculare atrophicans, which is a combination of atrophic, dry, dyspigmented skin and telangiectasia) develops in cases of otherwise typical mycosis fungoides; this is not an infrequent occurrence. Occasionally, it may predominate or even be the only presenting manifestation of the disease. It may rarely involve skin over the entire body.
