Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) is the most common primary cutaneous lymphoma but rarely encountered. It is often misdiagnosed with allergic or infectious dermatological conditions and is usually a diagnosis of exclusion. The subsets of CTCL primarily consist of CD4 + and CD30 + lymphoproliferative disorders including mycoses fungoides. Herein, we report a case of CD 8 + ve CTCL stage IA that was previously misdiagnosed with cutaneous tuberculosis with no response to antitubercular therapy. After a confirmatory diagnosis of CTCL with multiple sites involved, he was treated with definitive local radiotherapy alone and had a complete response to treatment with no recurrence at 5 year's follow-up.
