Transient acantholytic dermatosis is a papulovesicular cutaneous eruption first described in 1970. There have been subsequent reports of similar disorders occurring in patients with malignancy. Angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy with dysproteinemia is a disorder characterized by an acute onset of generalized lymphadenopathy associated with fever, malaise, pruritus, night sweats, and hepatosplenomegaly. The patient described had a papular acantholytic dermatosis associated with the development of angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy with dysproteinemia-like T-cell lymphoma. The cutaneous manifestations of angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy with dysproteinemia are discussed.
