Dr. Rosen describes cutaneous lymphoma and explains why many patients with this condition choose to receive treatment at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Cutaneous lymphomas are uncommon lymphomas that arise in the skin. These are diseases that, I am very proud of the fact that we have developed many of the modern therapies to control these cancers, that not only can take an individual’s life, but have cosmetic consequences. We are a national referral center here at Northwestern for cutaneous lymphomas, and on each Tuesday may see two-dozen patients who are coming from around the country for care here at Northwestern.
