Lymphomatoid papulosis type E (LyP) is a recently described subtype of LyP characterized by an angioinvasive infiltrate of atypical lymphocytes expressing CD30. We present a case of type E LyP with extensive cutaneous necrosis in the histopathological evaluation which was misdiagnosed as an ulcerative form of bacterial skin infection. The remarkable cutaneous necrosis showed in our case might be related to the angiodestructive infiltrate that was present in this circumstance.
