Lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) is a rare skin disorder. The overall prevalence rate of lymphomatoid papulosis is estimated at 1.2 to 1.9 cases per 1,000,000 population.

This rare condition has only been studied in depth since 1968.[1]

It can evolve into lymphoma.[2]

It may respond to methotrexate.[3]

It can appear very similar to anaplastic large cell lymphoma.[4]
