Answer

Primary cutaneous peripheral T-cell lymphomas, unspecified, are a heterogeneous group of diseases for which the common characteristic is a lack of typical features of mycosis fungoides. Cutaneous gamma/delta-positive T-cell lymphoma, [31] which belongs to this group, [1, 32] usually has an aggressive course and manifests with disseminated plaques and/or ulceronecrotic nodules or tumors, particularly on the extremities.
