Cutaneous pseudolymphomas are reactive lymphocytic proliferations which appear in the skin and resemble a malignant lymphoma.
Most of the pseudolymphomas are caused by infections with B. Burgdorferi, others include tattoo reactions, immunizations or allergens desensibilization injections and infection with herpes simplex and zoster.
The most common clinical manifestations are: a single large nodule or solitary and multiple lessions. They are sharply bordered, soft, redish, dome- shaped and covered by thinned skin.
The sites of predilection are the ear lobes, nape, nipple and areola, axillae, scrotum and dorsum of the foot.

Key words: Cutaneous Pseudolymphomas etiology, clinical manifestation.
