A rare finding of primary cutaneous CD4+ small to medium-sized T‑cell lymphoma (SMPTCL) in a fifteen-year-old patient is reported. This is a rare tumor entity for which there is currently no standardized treatment recommendation. At the interdisciplinary tumor board, the decision was made to resect the tumor and reconstruct the defect with a nasolabial advancement flap in a two-stage process. Follow-up examinations, currently over 3 years, have shown the patient to be free of recurrences.
