Pre-Sezary syndrome is an erythroderma with a chronic course, clinical findings of Sezary syndrome, lymphocytic subepidermal band infiltration at times, and repeated cycles of circulating Sezary cells of less than 1,000 cells/mm3. Duration of the pre-existing skin diseases preceding pre-Sezary erythroderma varies from a few weeks to 20 years. Before the erythroderma develops, these patients are diagnosed with contact dermatitis, neurodermatitis, chronic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, or asteatotic eczema. Hand lesion also precedes the pre-Sezary erythroderma. This condition has been controlled by three cycles of chemotherapy consisting of vincristine, cytoxan, doxorubicin, and prednisolone. We describe a case of pre-Sezary syndrome preceded by hand lesion and treated with chemotherapy.
