Primary cutaneous B-cell lymphoma is associated with poor prognosis. But with low grade pathology it may have a good prognosis. A 32-year-old man presented with hyperpigmented patches over chest which on biopsy showed perivascular infiltrate and was treated as vasculitis. After 8 months he came again with multiple nodules and plaques with ulceration. Biopsy of the plaque showed evidence of B-cell lymphoma. With chemotherapy the patient died after 6 months. Retrospective study of the earliest biopsy showed atypical lymphoid cells. This emphasizes the importance of the dermatopathological interpretation at the earliest stage.
