Cutaneous T cell lymphomas are types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that arise when infection-fighting white blood cells in the lymphatic system – called lymphocytes – become malignant and affect the skin.

Lymphomas are cancers of the lymphoid system and usually arise in lymph nodes.

However, with skin being the largest lymphoid organ in the body and our first line of defense against the outside environment, occasionally it becomes the site of lymphoma formation.

Listen in as Jasmine Zain, MD talks about T cell lymphomas, along with the best prevention and treatments.
