Granulomatous slack skin (GSS), a subtype of mycosis fungoides, is an extremely rare disease in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Only 1 reported case was documented in the nuclear medicine literature demonstrating this entity with gallium-67. A 16-year-old boy with GSS exhibited moderate F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in corresponding areas of cutaneous disease on positron emission tomography/computed tomography scan. F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography may be a valuable tool for staging and evaluating the therapeutic response in a patient with GSS.
