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

  • Evaluate and stage patient with CTCL in order to develop prognosis and treatment plan.

The diagnosis and management of Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma (CTCL) is challenging due to multiple clinical and histological variants as well as mimickers. In this session, we will begin with a discussion of classic CTCL and common mimickers of mycosis fungoides (MF). Clinical and histological variants of CTCL will be reviewed in order to facilitate the recognition and classification of CTCL. All stages of CTCL will be presented as well as systemic evaluation for CTCL patients.
