A young female patient suffered for 4 months from a widespread erythroderma rash of unknown origin, marked by a peculiar hyperaesthesia. Haematological and biopsy findings were initially non-specific. A rapid deterioration, accompanied by infiltration of the skin, lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly was suggestive of Sézary syndrome, which was confirmed by finding of 40% of the lymphocytes being atypical (Sézary cells).
