Abstract

In 2010, the first Japanese edition of guidelines for the management of cutaneous lymphoma was published jointly by the Japanese Dermatological Association (JDA) and the Japanese Skin Cancer Society (JSCS) - Lymphoma Study Group. Because the guidelines were revised in 2011 based on the most recent data, we summarized the revised guidelines in English for two reasons: (i) to inform overseas clinicians about our way of managing common types of cutaneous lymphomas such as mycosis fungoides/Sézary syndrome; and (ii) to introduce Japanese guidelines for lymphomas peculiar to Asia, such as adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma and extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type. References that provide scientific evidence for these guidelines have been selected by the JSCS - Lymphoma Study Group. These guidelines, together with the degrees of recommendation, have been made in the context of limited medical treatment resources, and standard medical practice within the framework of the Japanese National Health Insurance system.
