Mycosis fungoides is a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which is formed of mature, skin homing, clonal, malignant T lymphocytes. It can sometimes present with skin ulcers that are difficult to heal because of the presence of large number T lymphocytes and antigen-presenting cells. We present a case of nonhealing ulcers in a patient with mycosis fungoides, which was treated by narrow band ultraviolet B targeted phototherapy followed by split-thickness skin grafting. The graft uptake was well and the donor area also healed without any complications.
