Treatment for CTCL depends on the type and stage of the disease. Treatment options include phototherapy, radiation, topical therapy, systemic single-agent chemotherapy, combination chemotherapy and combined therapies. Patients with localized early-stage disease are usually treated with topical agents such as nitrogen mustard, skin-softening agents, anti-itch agents and gradual exposure to sunlight or ultraviolet light.
