Sézary syndrome typically presents in patients > 50 years of age, with a male predominance (2:1). The annual incidence is estimated to be 0.8 to 0.9 case per million persons per year, with a higher incidence in Black persons than in White persons. Sézary syndrome usually progresses rapidly; historically, affected individuals survived an average of 2-4 years after development of the condition, although survival has improved with newer treatments.
