A 73-year-old man comes to our attention for a lesion of the scalp. This lesion arose a few months after an ophthalmic Herpes Zoster involving the same region of the scalp. On examination there was an indolent purplish and erythematous nodule, localized in the fronto-parietal left region, with a diameter of 4x4 cm. The histology revealed a primary cutaneous B cell follicular lymphoma. The correlation between Herpes Zoster infection and B cell follicular lymphoma can be interpreted as a Wolf’s isotopic response, as already described in some cases. We present the case and a brief review of the literature.


KEY WORDS: Lymphoma, non-Hodgkin - Herpes zoster - scalp
