Abstract

In Aga Khan University, a retrospective review was conducted from January 2013-December 2020 for patients who received Total Skin Electron Beam Therapy (TSEBT) for the management of Mycosis Fungoides (MF). The clinical response rate and disease-free interval (DFI) was evaluated for three patients. All of the patients received a 3600 cGy dose of radiation. Clinical complete remission (cCR) was observed in two out of three patients, while one patient showed clinical partial response. Following the cCR to TSEBT, the DFI of the first patient with stage 1B lasted 30 months, while the second patient with stage IIB remained disease free for five months. TSEBT is an effective treatment for MF disease.

It can thus be expected that patients with limited disease in the early stage can acquire a cCR with a longer DFI.
