Summary

In the literature on cutaneous lymphomas, data on children and adolescents are often lumped together with those of adult patients. Although clinicopathologic features may indeed be similar, sometimes in young individuals cutaneous lymphomas present with peculiar aspects. This chapter offers an overview of cutaneous lymphomas arising in children and adolescents, together with available data on relative frequency. In this context, it must be underlined that the incidence and prevalence of different types of cutaneous lymphomas in pediatric patients varies in different reports.
