Dermatopathic lymphadenitis: A pitfall for lymphoma evaluation by F-18 FDG PET/CT.
Dermatopathic lymphadenitis associated with human papilloma virus infection and verruca vulgaris.
Dermatopathic lymphadenitis imitating a deep neck space infection.
Although an increased number of Tregs in skin lesions of MF have been reported to have a favorable prognosis that is independent of lesion type , we found no correlation with disease-related survival in dermatopathic LNs obtained from CTCL patients with relatively advanced skin involvement.
We have demonstrated that a significantly lower number of FoxP3-expressing cells occurred in most LNs that were clearly involved with lymphoma as compared to dermatopathic nodes.

All the 7 lymphnodes were negative for malignancy and showed the features of dermatopathic
Reactive lymph nodes were excluded, such as florid follicular hyperplasia and reactive changes confirmed or clinically suspected from viral etiology, autoimmune disease, dermatopathic
origin, and other nonmalignant pathologic diagnoses.
One case was a combined lesion of Tuberculosis and metastatic and one case of dermatopathic lymphadenitis.
One case was combined lesion of tuberculosis and metastasis and one case was dermatopathic lymphadenitis.
The differential diagnosis includes angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE), Hodgkin lymphoma, angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma, Langerhans cell histiocytosis, florid follicular hyperplasia, Castleman disease, dermatopathic
lymphadenopathy, allergic granulomatosis of Churg and Strauss, drug reaction, and parasitic lymphadenitis.
