F110 - Management Issues in Cutaneous Lymphoma

Sunday, March 3; 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Apply appropriate tools and tests to diagnose challenging cases of cutaneous lymphoma and to distinguish from its mimics.
  • Identify and formulate an optimal management strategy personalized for the patient
  • Discuss how the prescribed management benefited and potentially harmed the patient and how it can be modified to further improve your clinical practice


Cutaneous lymphoma is a group of rare disorders with quite heterogeneous presentations, where management should be individualized to optimize the overall benefit. This session will focus on the critical assessment of how we can improve our clinical management by using cases provided by experts. The participants will enjoy the discussion on utilizing cost-effective tools/tests for diagnosis, optimizing diagnosis by appropriate clinical-pathologic interpretation, developing a personalized management program, and evaluating the clinical outcome of the selected management. Each case discussion will conclude with how the management can be improved to deliver the optimal care for the patient with cutaneous lymphoma
