This retrospective study analyzed 1422 patients with classic mycosis fungoides who were diagnosed and followed from 1975 through 2010 in 27 Italian centers. The results demonstrate that tumor-lymph node-metastasis-blood (TNMB) stage influences not only the risk but also the pattern of disease progression and that erythroderma occurs more frequently as an evolution of patch/plaque-stage than tumor-stage disease. Finally, the authors provide a further clinical validation of the recently proposed International Society for Cutaneous Lymphomas and the Cutaneous Lymphoma Task Force of the European Organization of Research and Treatment of Cancer (ISCL/EORTC) staging system.
