Session Time: -

Cutaneous lymphomas are a rare and heterogeneous group of disorders. Optimal management of these often challeng- ing cases requires expertise in dermatological, haematolog- ical and radiation oncological disciplines. The Westmead Hospital Cutaneous Lymphoma Clinic was established in 2008 and has now seen in excess of 170 patients. The work- ings of the clinic and examples of cases demonstrating the benefit of a multidisciplinary service will be discussed. This model could be adapted to the management of other skin conditions where input from different specialties could ben- efit and streamline patient care.
