Answer

Unrelated cord blood transplantation is a possible therapeutic option. [19] In one patient, it was performed following myeloablative conditioning and brought a complete remission. Although a relapse occurred 3 months later, discontinuation of immunosuppressant therapy led to mycosis fungoides regression and a second complete remission that continued for more than 23 months. Reduced-intensity umbilical cord blood transplantation is another option for advanced mycosis fungoides. [98]
