17) On light microscopy, parameters strongly suggestive of the diagnosis of MF include; atypical intra-epidermal lymphocytes which are surrounded by halos, Pautrier's micro abscesses, disproportionate epidermotropism, epidermal lymphocytes larger than dermal lymphocytes, hyperconvoluted intraepidermal lymphocytes aligned within the basal layer and the papillary dermal fibrosis within a lichenoid infiltrate.

A lichenoid infiltrate was present in 11 of the specimens (48%), whereas psoriasiform epidermal hyperplasia was present in only 8 (35%).
