Alopecia mucinosa responding to antileprosy mucinosis folicular Secondary alopecia mucinosa should be treated appropriately for the underlying skin disease, particularly if it is cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.

A case of idiopathic follicular mucinosis treated with mucinosis folicular gel. Several therapeutic modalities have been described for primary FM, with the use of topical or intralesional corticosteroids, mucinosis folicular, antimalarial agents, oral retinoids, interferon alpha, minocycline and phototherapy. In both cases there is usually no association with systemic diseases, although some of the latest studies have demonstrated the presence of histological characteristics of mycosis fungoides mucinosis folicular patients with primary FM.

Histological mucinosis folicular of the underlying disease are present in secondary alopecia mucinosa.

In the case presented, the histological examination was essential for the diagnosis, since the inflammatory infiltrate mucinosis folicular of macrophages, perifollicular and perivascular lymphocytes, with no atypias or epidermotropism, rejected the diagnosis of childhood tuberculoid leprosy, confirming the diagnosis of FM.

It has been suggested that patients with clonal TCR gene rearrangements may be at a higher risk for the development of lymphoma, although long-term follow-up of seven patients younger than forty years of age failed to show progression to MF despite the presence of a clonal TCR gene rearrangement.
