Cutaneous lymphomas are true imitators of many other skin diseases. Patients from the Vanderbilt University Cutaneous Lymphoma Clinic will be presented. Each case will be presented with frequent pauses to allow participants an opportunity to choose the next step in management. This will allow participants the opportunity to assess their skills and knowledge in relationship to others. Participants will be able to recognize cutaneous clues to separate cutaneous lymphomas from other entities and develop effective strategies to accurately diagnose and stage patients. By applying knowledge of classification and prognosis participants will create more meaningful treatment plans for their patients.
