Abstract: A 4-year-old boy with primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma located on the nasal tip is presented. The lesion healed spontaneously in 4 months without any evidence of residual disease. Cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma, though rare in children, may occur, and should be considered when a rapidly growing ulcerating skin lesion appears.
