The Jefferson Cutaneous Lymphoma Center provides state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary care for Philadelphia, South Jersey and Delaware's underserved patients with cutaneous lymphoma.

Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) is the most common type of cutaneous lymphoma that typically presents with red, scaly patches or thickened plaques of skin. This condition can often be misdiagnosed or commonly mistaken for inflammatory, chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema. Cutaneous B-cell lymphoma (CBCL) is a less common type.
