Summary

Cutaneous pseudolymphoma is the term used to indicate a group of benign lymphoproliferative disorders of the skin, being the cutaneous lymphomas a form of B-cell pseudolymphoma. Clinically it manifests as solitary nodules or plaques, usually located on the face of young women. Its pathogenesis could be related to an exaggerated local immune response to various causes such as insect bites, acupuncture, vaccinations, tattoos, drugs and infections. We present two cases of patients diagnosed with skin linfocitoma made in the Pathology Unit in Hernán Henríquez Hospital of Temuco.

KEY WORDS: Lymphocytoma cutis; Pseudolymphoma; Pseudolymphoma B.
