A 78-year-old woman with underlying malignant T-cell lymphoma, urinary tract infection, and bilateral pneumonia complicated with acute respiratory failure developed 2 purpuric macules over the right chest, and one purpuric papule and one purpuric plaque around the umbilicus. Skin biopsy from the macule revealed malignant T-cell lymphoma with skin involvement and concurrent cytomegalovirus infection. The clinical status deteriorated so rapidly that she died of adult respiratory distress syndrome 3 days after the biopsy was done.
