  • Cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia with nodular pattern, a condition of the skin characterized by a solitary or localized cluster of asymptomatic erythematous to violaceous papules or nodules[2]: 725 
  • Cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia with bandlike and perivascular patterns, a condition of the skin characterized by skin lesions that clinically resemble mycosis fungoides[2]: 726 

Jessner lymphocytic infiltrate

Jessner lymphocytic infiltrate of the skin is a cutaneous condition characterized by a persistent papular and plaque-like skin eruption which can occur on the neck, face and back and may re-occur. This is an uncommon skin disease and is a benign collection of lymph cells. Its cause is not known and can be hereditary.[1]: 1887 [2]: 727  It is named for Max Jessner.[3][4] It is thought to be equivalent to lupus erythematosus tumidus.[5]

It can occur as the result of ACE inhibitors and a number of medications used to treat multiple sclerosis including glatiramer acetate.[6]
