Answer

Subcutaneous panniculitis-like T cell lymphoma usually responds poorly to chemotherapy. Cyclosporine A has shown some efficacy for cases that relapse after chemotherapy, and a case report of a long-term complete remission with cyclosporine A as a first-line therapy has been published. [114] Systemic corticosteroids have also been found effective for first-line single-agent therapy, inducing complete remission in four of five patients in one study. [115]
