Abstract

Mature or peripheral T cell lymphomas (PTCL) are uncommon in most parts of the world and account for only 10-15% of all non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHLs). They usually occur in middle-aged to elderly patients, 68% presenting with features characterized by a disseminated disease, with systemic symptoms in nearly half of them (45%), bone marrow (BM) involvement in a quarter (25.8%), and extranodal disease in a third (37%). We report for the first time a patient with a lesion on the glans penis, an unusual site.
