Abstract

Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that can involve the skin primarily or secondarily. Our case describes an unusual presentation of eruptive tumors localized to the left breast region several years following breast cancer surgery and radiation for carcinoma of the breast. This report highlights the challenges in reaching the diagnosis of an aggressive systemic lymphoma presenting on the skin.
