Recent epidemiology studies have identified a steady increase in the incidence of cutaneous lymphomas over the past few decades. Although possible explanations for this increased incidence include heightened awareness of these conditions as well as a more refined diagnostic acuity by dermatologists and pathologists, an increase secondary to environmental factors cannot be discounted. Our understanding of cutaneous lymphomas keeps evolving. Consequently, our knowledge and understanding of cutaneous lymphomas requires reconsideration of past dogma and critical revision of the new proposals. In this article, some hot topics and important new findings in the field are reviewed.
