Abstract: Primary cutaneous lymphoma in childhood is extremely rare. An 11‐year‐old girl had lesions that were treated as infected insect bites until a biopsy was performed and the diagnosis of primary T‐cell lymphoma was made. In contrast to the typically indolent course of cutaneous T‐cell lymphoma in adults, the condition in children tends to disseminate rapidly.
