Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTL), nasal type, is an Epstein–Barr virus (EBV)-associated aggressive form of lymphoma that primarily involves areas outside the nasal cavity. Skin is also commonly involved resulting in a variety of skin manifestations. Here, we report an ENKTL, nasal type, in a 29-year-old male with a previously undescribed acneiform presentation. Skin biopsy revealed an angiodestructive, perivascular lymphocytic infiltration, which stained positive for CD3, CD56, and TIA-1 in various proportions. Scattered EBV-infected cells were demonstrated by in situ hybridization. The patient received chemotherapy with almost complete resolution of the skin lesions initially but later experienced flare-ups.
