Mycosis fungoides complicating pregnancy is rarely encountered. As it is a form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, some of the treatment options are contraindicated in pregnancy, and the disease may become unresponsive to safer conventional therapies. We report a patient who, in her third trimester of pregnancy, failed to respond to the treatment options available. Left with little choice, a trial of α-interferon was undertaken. The patient responded with remission, and prolongation of pregnancy was achieved.
