A Regional Resource for People with CTCL
Cutaneous lymphomas are cancers of the white blood cells that involve the skin, lymph nodes and blood. Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) is the most common type, diagnosed in about 3,000 Americans each year. While CTCL can mimic eczema or other chronic skin conditions, our specialized team of SLUCare physicians can help make an accurate diagnosis and provide treatment.
SLUCare cutaneous lymphoma specialists deliver expertise, technology and diagnostic tools in treating children and adults with this rare type of cancer. Physicians from different specialties work together through a single clinic, delivering efficient care for patients, easing travel time and streamlining the number of appointments needed.
Located at the Saint Louis University Cancer Center, the SLUCare Cutaneous Lymphoma Clinic team manages the care of CTCL patients from across the St. Louis region and neighboring states.
