Abstract

A case of a 20-years-old black man from Salvador, Bahia with
HTLV-I associated T cell lymphoma is presented. In spite of
the absence of splenomegaly and leukemia, the patient had a
marked cephalic tumoral infiltration associated with axillary
tumors in a pattern not yet described in adult T cell
lymphoma. Peripheral blood involvement was observed later on
in the course of the disease. The patient underwent
chemotherapy but died seven months after diagnosis.

Keywords
