This study was to investigate the clinicopathological characteristics, treatments, and prognoses of papillary mycosis fungus (PMF). From May 2004 to September 2015, three cases of papular mycosis fungoides were analyzed at Jinhua Municipal Central Hospital. Diagnostic criteria refer to the World Health Organization 2005 Classification of Cutaneous Lymphoma. Factors that influenced patient survival and prognoses were analyzed. Skin papules were reduced, and skin color was lightened in three patients after a short treatment regimen. Follow-up for 4–7 years revealed few changes in pigmentation, no increase in skin papules, and neither organ nor lymph node involvement. Skin papular mycosis fungal disease can heal itself, and there is no need for excessive intervention.
