Cutaneous Connective Tissue Diseases

Cutaneous autoimmune connective tissue diseases are a diverse group of conditions that affect the skin, mucous membrane, hair/nails, and internal organs. These conditions can predominantly affect the skin, are difficult to diagnose and are often refractory to treatment.

Our specialists provide innovative and comprehensive care for patients with cutaneous lupus (discoid lupus, butterfly rash, subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus), dermatomyositis, and other cutaneous autoimmune connective tissue diseases.

Our specialists engage in clinical and translational research to advance treatment and patient care.
