Abstract Mycosis fungoides is a cutaneous T-cell lymphoma that has been rarely reported to involve ocular structures. A 33-year-old woman who had received therapy for mycosis fungoides on the trunk for 11 years, presented to our clinic with new plaques and tumors on her eyebrows and eyelid margin, and alopecia of her eyelashes and eyebrow. The histopathological examinations supported the diagnosis of mycosis fungoides. There was no intraocular involvement with tumor. The mycosis fungoides was of stage II B, and the patient was referred to medical oncology and radiation oncology clinics for treatment. She was placed on a radiotherapy schedule. The involvement of mycosis fungoides in the ocular area is rare in the published work. The importance of eye involvement is being seen in advanced cases, and there is a possible association between mycosis fungoides and poor prognosis by being an indicator of systemic involvement.
