It is characterized by the presence of eruptive papules and nodules, or tumors, which may be localized or disseminated. Morphologically, it is composed of small to medium-sized, or medium-sized to large, CD8-positive T-lymphocytes with pleomorphic or blastic nuclei. Epidermotropism is often pronounced. Angiocentricity and angioinvasion may be present. [1]
