Hello new followers!👋 In honor of your joining me on Twitter, I thought I'd put together a new #dermatology #tweetorial/#medthread. This time, on a topic near and dear to my own clinical practice:

MYCOSIS FUNGOIDES!

Let's start w/ caveats:
1-#MycosisFungoides (MF) isn't the same as Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma. MF is a subtype of #CTCL; there are many other types of CTCL that aren't MF.
2-I co-direct the Skin Lymphoma Program @MGHCancerCenter, so some of this is institutional preference.

There are roughly 80,000 new cases of #lymphoma a year in the US, and only 3% are primary cutaneous. Within that ~2500 cases, MF makes up almost half (~44%)! The overall classification schema for these diseases was recently updated by the WHO:
