Expression of CD30 is a distinct feature of B- or T-cell activation, found in Hodgkin's disease, large cell anaplastic lymphoma, lymphomatoid papulosis, as well as in certain viral infections such as human T-lymphotropic virus type I, HIV, hepatitis B and C virus, and Epstein-Barr virus. Here, we report highly proliferative CD30-positive cutaneous infiltrates in 3 patients with Milkers's nodules, adding parapoxvirus infection to the spectrum of CD30-positive benign lymphoproliferations.
