Primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma (PCALCL) is a rare form of ALCL, usually seen in elderly patients which is clinically characterized by single or multifocal nodules that ulcerate, autoregressive, and recurrent. Extracutaneous dissemination may occur, especially to regional lymph nodes. In this report, we present an unusual case of an 8-year-old boy with a noduloulcerativelesion present on the upper back with axillary painful lymphadenopathy, initially mimicking as scrofuloderma which was later histopathologically and immunohistochemically diagnosed as CD30+ PCALCL.
