Answer

Extracutaneous involvement in mycosis fungoides becomes more clinically evident as the stages and extent of the disease progress. Peripheral lymphadenopathy is the most frequent site of extracutaneous involvement in mycosis fungoides.

Evaluate palpable lymphadenopathy by obtaining a biopsy, because the result influences the patient's stage, prognosis, and treatment.
