F014 - Multidisciplinary Management of Chronic GVHD

Friday, March 1; 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Identify the variable skin and mucosal manifestation of GVHD
  • Recognize the skin and mucosal manifestations that are most likely to lead to severe sequelae/damage and require aggressive therapy
  • Treat skin manifestations using a multi-modality approach with topical and systemic therapies as well as supportive care measures


GVHD is a multisystem disease with protean skin manifestations as well as frequent involvement of the oral, ocular and genital mucosae. This session will utilize Dermatology and non-Dermatology sub-specialists in the NIH GVHD multidisciplinary program to provide a framework for coordinated management of GVHD focusing on skin and mucosal manifestations. This will include a comprehensive approach to care, including topical and systemic therapy, adaptive tools and rehabilitation measures.
