We report a 38-year-old woman with lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) who had nodular and papulovesicular lesions develop on the genital area and oral commissure. Mucosal involvement in LyP is a rare event, and its clinical relevance is still unknown. Aggressive therapies are not recommended in patients with LyP with either cutaneous or mucosal involvement.
