Each of the faculty will present a case referred to their lymphoma clinic for a problem that is a recurring consultation. A representative case of each clinical problem will be presented along with the step by step analysis that led to a successful conclusion. Cases will span the spectrum of cutaneous lymphomas from refractory dermatoses to aggressive histologies.
