Abstract

The term cutaneous pseudolymphoma (CPL), an accumulation of lymphocytes in response to a foreign antigen or unknown stimuli lacks specificity, and has been used when neither cause nor mechanism for the lymphocytic proliferation has been identified. Cases of childhood CPL are rare and require extensive investigation because of their potential for malignant transformation. We report a case of a child with a scalp mass diagnosed as CPL.
