The two major topical treatment modalities for cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) are mechlorethamine (nitrogen mustard) and topical carmustine (BCNU). Topical mechorethamine hydrochloride has been used since the late 1950s as therapy for CTCL. Topical BCNU solution is a highly effective treatment for early stage mycosis fungoides. This article describes these two modalities.
