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

  • Differentiate between benign and malignant lymphoid infiltrates in the skin.
  • Recognize and become familiar with less common types of cutaneous lymphomas.
  • Utilize the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Clinical Practice Guidelines for the staging and management of cutaneous lymphomas.

The panel will focus on practical approaches to common diagnostic challenges seen in cutaneous lymphomas. In particular, the panel will address how to differentiate cutaneous lymphomas from their clinical and histopathologic mimics. The panel will also discuss some recently described and rare types of cutaneous lymphomas, including gamma/delta T-cell lymphoma and CD4+ small/medium pleomorphic T-cell lymphoma, with an emphasis on the importance of the clinical-pathologic correlation. Practice guidelines that can be used for evaluating and managing patients with cutaneous lymphomas will be reviewed as well.
