Abstract

Blastic/blastoid natural killer cell lymphoma is a rare disease characterized by blastic cytological features, lack of cytoplasmic granulues and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) association, expression of CD56, and the germline TCR gene arrangement. It has been known to demonstrate more aggressive clinical behavior than other natural killer cell lymphoma. We herein report a case of blastoid natural killer cell lymphoma which occurred in a 32-year-old woman. She showed only localized skin lesions with good response to chemotherapy.
