Primary cutaneous follicle center lymphoma (PCFCL) is a rare type of indolent, low-grade cutaneous B-cell lymphoma with an excellent prognosis. It usually presents with erythematous nodules and plaques on the head, neck, or back. The diagnosis is primarily based on histopathology, immunohistochemistry, and molecular studies. We describe a case of PCFCL causing a well-defined alopecic atrophic patch. The patch developed in the area of a large subcutaneous nodule that regressed after treatment with rituximab infusion. We hypothesize that the alopecia could have been caused by pressure.
