Hypopigmented lesions are rarely encountered in mycosis fungoides. We here report a 22-year-old female patient who presented with a 5-year history of asymptomatic progressively increasing discrete and confluent hypopigmented macules and a 1-year history of a few itchy erythematous, scaly, indurated plaques. The histological features were consistent with a clinical diagnosis of mycosis fungoides. She was successfully treated with PUVA therapy.
