Answer

Participation in a clinical trial as a treatment option for all patients with SS or advanced-stage MF is recommended by both the NCCN and EOTRTC. [26, 2] Treatment for SS or erythrodermic MF (stage IV) is palliative. The preferred modality is ECP, either alone or in combination with other treatments. [26, 27, 2]
