A 55-year-old man with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis on fingolimod presented to the dermatology clinic with skin lesions on the left temple and cheek. Histopathology showed a diffuse infiltrate of enlarged, atypical lymphocytes throughout the dermis with an overlying grenz zone and a subpopulation of scattered smaller lymphocytes and plasma cells. Epstein-Barr virus-encoded RNA in situ hybridization stain was positive. Based on the morphologic and immunophenotypic findings, a diagnosis of EBV-positive diffuse large B-cell lymphoma was made. This case aims to raise awareness for the dermatologist that patients on fingolimod may be at increased risk of lymphoproliferative disorders.
