Skin lymphomas are now divided into 'T' or thymic cell lymphomas (mycosis fungoides being the principal type) and 'B' cell lymphomas after the bursa of Fabricius. The 'T' cell lymphomas all are identified by the thymic or cerebriform cell. Those lymphomas of the skin which do not contain these characteristic cells are derived from the bursa cells and are termed 'B' cell lymphomas. A large percentage of these non 'T' cell lymphomas have been histologically diagnosed as lymphocytic lymphoma of the skin. The authors had an opportunity to scan a patient with histologically proven lymphocytic lymphoma of the skin with Ga-67 and obtained an excellent correlation between gallium accumulation in the skin lesion and histologic confirmation of lymphocytic lymphoma.
