Mycophenolic acid/prednisolone/tacrolimus Reactions 1680, p249 - 2 Dec 2017 Mycophenolic acid/prednisolone/ tacrolimus Cutaneous atypical papular CD8+ lymphoproliferative disorder: case report A 20-year-old woman developed cutaneous atypical papular CD8+ lymphoproliferative disorder at acral sites during post- transplant immunosuppressive therapy with mycophenolic acid, prednisolone and tacrolimus [routes and dosages not stated]. The woman presented with a symmetrical eruption on her hands, which she was experiencing from last 2 months. Four months prior to presentation, she underwent renal transplantation for chronic renal failure secondary to familial Mediterranean fever complicated by amyloidosis. Prior to transplantation, she received colchicine, and post- transplantation, she received mycophenolic acid, prednisolone and tacrolimus, additionally. A physical examination showed a number of asymptomatic, ill-defined, erythematous macules, and several slightly hyperkeratotic papules (2–4mm in size) on the palms, especially on the volar sites of the fingers, and a few papules on the dorsa of the hands. A symmetrical mild scaling was also present on both heels. A biopsy taken from papular lesion showed focal exocytosis of small lymphocytes, some with slightly convoluted nuclei, a dense dermal infiltration of small and medium-sized lymphocytes with slight nuclear atypia, and an admixture of numerous histiocytes. A monoclonal alkaline phosphatase/anti-alkaline phosphatase staining technique showed CD8, reactive in approximately 50% of the lymphocytes, particularly the medium-sized cells and the intra-epidermal lymphocytes. On the basis of, histological and partially clinical features of atypical CD8+ LPD occurring in immunocompromised conditions, a cutaneous atypical papular CD8+ lymphoproliferative disorder of acral sites was suspected. Subsequently, The woman received two courses of topical corticosteroids as palliative treatment. On the following three months, the palmar erythematous macules partially healed, though some of the papules persisted and some new ones appeared. Thereafter, her systemic immunosuppressive therapy of tacrolimus was replaced with everolimus, and a new course of topical corticosteroid was introduced. Subsequently, her all lesions were disappeared within one month. At six months follow-up, she remained asymptomatic without any relapse. Author comment: "In addition, given the context of immunosuppression after renal transplantation, our case also falls into the spectrum of immunosuppression associated CD8+ lymphoproliferative conditions."
