Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Describe the most common disorders that affect patients after bone marrow transplantation
  • Identify the diagnostic caveats in patients with non-specific histology
  • Outline management guidelines for treatment of common cutaneous disorders after transplantation

As indications for bone marrow transplantation increase, dermatologists are called more commonly to help establish a differential diagnosis and treatment for patients with cutaneous disease before, during and after transplantation. Novel therapies and diagnostic criteria continue to be developed. Furthermore, as more patients survive transplantation, community dermatologists have begun to see more of these patients in follow up for longer periods of time, as they are discharged from transplantation centers. This session aims to provide an overview of bone marrow transplantation, including a review of novel concepts and therapies for both community and academic dermatologists.
