Mycosis fungoides is the most common disease of the primary cutaneous T-cell lymphoma group. This is a retrospective study to evaluate the outcome of 30 patients with mycosis fungoides who were followed up for at least 3 years, 18 of them followed for 5 years and 9 of them followed for 7 years. A total of 10 patients achieved a sustained remission, 2 patients achieved a remission but then relapsed and three patients died from lymphoma-related death. It is concluded that the majority of the patients with T1 or T2 stage MF usually have a good prognosis. As a rule, those who do progress further in the disease have advanced stages at the moment of the diagnosis; the disease progression occurring during the first 3-5 years after diagnosis.
