Mantle cell lymphomas account for about 2 to 10% of non-Hodgkin B-cell lymphomas. Despite the cellular maturity of B-cell lymphomas, the disease is aggressive in the majority of cases and its course is unpredictable. The clinical presentation is variable, and multiple nodal and extranodal manifestations have been described. Cutaneous infiltration is an uncommon (2-6%) location of the disease. An extensive review of the literature was performed, and 24 case reports and five case series were found describing cutaneous locations. These data were thoroughly studied in order to present their clinical and laboratory characteristics in this review.
