Merkel cell carcinoma with fingolimod treatment for multiple sclerosis: A case report
چکیده انگلیسی

•This is the second case of Merkel cell carcinoma with the MCPy virus and fingolimod.•Fingolimod may reactivate latent viruses, such as the Merkel cell polyoma virus.•Clinicians should seek expert consultation for suspicious skin lesions.

Neoplasms and reactivation of latent viruses have been observed in individuals taking fingolimod. Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC), a rare neuroendocrine skin cancer, is associated with immunosuppression and can be triggered by the oncogenic Merkel cell polyoma virus (MCPyV). We report a case of a 61-year-old man with multiple sclerosis who developed MCPyV-positive MCC 4 years after starting fingolimod. This is the second report of MCC associated with MCPyV in an individual on fingolimod.
