S005 - Cutaneous Lymphomas

Friday, February 16; 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Evaluate, work-up, diagnose and design a treatment course for patients with different forms of cutaneous lymphomas (including B- and T-cell types)
  • Analyze a descriptively written pathology report regarding a diagnosis of cutaneous lymphoma and design a treatment plan for such a patient
  • Recognize molecular advances in cutaneous lymphomas


This session will provide an in-depth and comprehensive review of the classic clinical and histopathologic presentations of different forms of cutaneous T-cell and B-cell lymphoma. In addition, management of both early and advanced stage cutaneous lymphoma will be reviewed. How to interpret a pathology report that is descriptively written (i.e. a specific diagnosis is not given) and then how to treat such a patient will be discussed as well. The session will also cover molecular advances in cutaneous lymphoma.
