Brigham and Women's Hospital

"One of only six centers in the nation funded by the National Institutes of Health"

Brigham and Women's Hospital

The Department of Dermatology treats all diseases of the skin in adult patients including psoriasis, benign and malignant skin tumors, immune or allergic mediated processes, and diseases of other organ systems with cutaneous manifestations. Cutaneous oncology, including melanoma and cutaneous lymphoma, is an area of special expertise. Additionally, dermatology care is offered through multidisciplinary clinics in association with the Division of Hematology and Oncology. Close ties with the Dermatopathology and Hematopathology divisions allow for analysis of skin biopsies through light microscopy, monoclonal antibody immuno-staining, and antigen receptor gene rearrangement studies for analysis of clonality. Flow cytometric analysis of peripheral blood using monoclonal antibodies is also available. Services such as Mohs micrographic surgery for non-melanoma skin cancer, as well as phototherapy for a variety of dermatoses are also offered, as well as specialty services in aesthetics and cosmetic dermatology.

The Department of Dermatology is also the site of the Harvard Skin Disease Research Center (HSDRC), one of only six centers in the nation funded by the National Institutes of Health. The goals of the HSDRC are to foster collaborations and interactions between investigative dermatologists and other biomedical scientists, and to provide education, enlightenment, training, and scientific innovation that will enable better understanding and successful treatment of skin disease.
