Cutaneous lymphomas are rare types of cancer that affect the skin, lymph nodes, peripheral blood and internal organs. The Vanderbilt Dermatology, Radiation Oncology and Hematology/Oncology departments evaluate and treat patients with this disease. We also evaluate patients with suspected cutaneous lymphoma or skin biopsies with atypical lymphocyte infiltrates.
After diagnosis, we develop a plan of treatment for you while planning management of side effects. Treatments include a range of therapies such as phototherapy, oral medications, targeted therapies, chemotherapy and surgery.
