Mycosis fungoides is a malignant lymphoproliferative T-cell disorder that is generally characterised by its initial presentation in the skin. The rapid development of tumours in mycosis fungoides without long preceding patch or plaque stage conforms to the tumour d'emblee variety of this disorder, first described by Vidal & Brocq (1885). A case of a patient with 3 month history of mycosis fungoides was reported. The first nodule lesion was observed in right upper limb wrist. Similar tumours arose on the whole body skin. It was clinically and histopathologically diagnosed as mycosis fungoides. We present the case of the patient because of characteristic for the d'emblee variant course of a disease and really rare occurance.
