Short Description of the Lectures:
- The Many Faces of Mycosis Fungoides
In The Many Faces of Mycosis Fungoides I shall be addressing the importance of the clinical features in establishing a diagnosis of mycosis fungoides (MF), emphasising that a pathologist can only diagnose cutaneous T-cell lymphoma but it is the dermatologist that diagnoses MF in the presence of characteristic patches and plaques. In addition, MF present myriad clinical pictures and histopathological variants, which can cause confusion and may not be recognised as MF
- A Series of Educational Cases
In A Series of Educational Cases I shall present a number of uncommon conditions of which dermatologists may not be aware, and discuss the diagnosis and characteristics of those conditions.
