Lymphomatoid papulosis is presented by sponta­neously regressing cutaneous infiltrates, that microscopically resemble a lymphomas and may evolve into Hodgkin or non- Hodgkin malignant lymphoma.
We present a case of Lymphomatoid papulosis in a 64 years old male, who complains from reddish non painful papules, localized symmetrically on the back and lateral zone of the legs.
The patient was treated for 10 weeks with low dose of methotrexat (15 mg per week) with good clinical result.
One year after treatment interruption the same patient had a similar clinical changes and hystochemical signs for development of T-cell lymphoma.

Key words:  Lymphomatoid papulosis, T-cell lymphoma, hystopathology, immunohistochemistry .
