Primary cutaneous lymphomas are a heterogeneous group of diseases with indolent or aggressive behaviour, skin-limited or systemic extension, from T or B cell origin. The optimal management requires the multi-disciplinary approach with dermatologists, hemato-oncologists, pathologists and molecular biologists. The objective of this review is to harmonise the work-up and the treatment of these different entities of cutaneous T or B cell lymphoma in Belgium, according to the availability of the drugs and specialised treatment such as extracorporeal photopherisis or total skin electron beam therapy.
