cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia

cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia
an ill-defined, benign skin condition characterized by skin lesions ranging from a solitary plaque or nodule to several in a group or more widespread lesions; they are usually found on the face, ears, limbs, or areolae of the breasts. When multiple, they may resemble malignant lymphoma, although some may regress, sometimes with recurrences. Sometimes it is a reaction to an allergy hyposensitization injection, insect bite, light, trauma, or tattoo pigment. Called also cutaneous lymphoplasia, lymphadenosis benigna cutis, lymphocytoma cutis, and Spiegler-Fendt pseudolymphoma or sarcoid.
