A Study to Review Patient Experiences and Obtain Follow Up from Patients having Skin Directed Radiation Therapy for Cutaneous Inflammatory Dermatoses


About this study

The purpose of this study is to:

  1. To determine the response rates and toxicity in patients that have undergone skin directed radiation therapy for inflammatory cutaneous dermatoses.
  2. To review and report the institutional experience, clinical responses, and recurrence rates after skin directed radiation therapy by varying dosing regimens and treatment regimens.
  3. To gather information on technical innovations used in the treatment of inflammatory dermatoses with the goal of publishing our findings so that others can utilize techniques we have found to be useful in the treatment of particularly challenging cases.
