This book provides a current experience in the diagnostic diagnostic techniques and treatment approaches available for unusual cutaneous lymphomas. It features concise case-based chapters with a particular emphasis on instances of mature T-cell and NK-cell neoplasms, mature B-cell neoplasms, immature hematopoietic malignancies, and other lymphoproliferative disorders. Clinically-oriented cases emphasize the importance of physical examination along with modern tests of laboratory diagnostics and clinico-pathological correlations.
Cutaneous Lymphomas: Unusual Cases 3 presents a range of difficult and rare cases, which would be uncommon even to the specialists in this field. Therefore, it is a vital reference source for dermatologists, dermatophatologists, cutaneous oncologists, hematooncologists, pathologists, oncologists, and other medical professionals who treat these patients.
Dr. Akilov is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Dermatology and a Director of Cutaneous Lymphoma Program at the University of Pittsburgh. 60% of his time devoted to clinical work when he sees the patient in the outpatient setting as well as a consulting physician for inpatient dermatology cases. Dr. Akilov is a principal investigator on various clinical trials in cutaneous lymphoma. As an independent investigator, Dr. Akilov's research focuses on the pathogenesis of mycosis fungoides and Sezary syndrome, biomarker discovery, and novel therapeutics and is supported by private foundations and pharmaceutical companies. Dr. Akilov is an active national and international teacher giving more than 20 lectures a year. Dr. Akilov serves on the Board of Directors of the United States Cutaneous Lymphoma Consortium. Dr. Akilov authored more than 70 publications in peer-reviewed journals, including around 40 on the subject of cutaneous lymphoma, three book chapters, and more than 200 of conference abstracts and proceedings.
