Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the efficacy of tretinoin (TRA) in patients with mycosis fungoides/Sezary syndrome. II. Evaluate the spectrum of toxicity of TRA in this patient population.

OUTLINE: Nonrandomized study. Single-agent Chemotherapy. Tretinoin, All-trans-Retinoic Acid, TRA, NSC-122758.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: If 1 or more of the first 15 evaluable patients experience an objective response, then 20 additional patients will be entered. It is anticipated that the accrual rate will be 1-2 patients per month.
