Abstract

The frequency and prognostic importance of various characteristics of patients registered by the Mycosis Fungoides Cooperative Group between November 1974 and December 1977 are reported. Variables which were considered include demographic and historical factors, symptoms, extent of disease, and other physical findings. A staging system which is based on the extent of skin involvement and the number of modal sites clinically involved is described. Finally, a description of therapeutic results to date for patients randomized into Mycosis Fungoides Cooperative Group protocols is presented.
