Welcome to

Skin & Cancer Unit

We offer expert diagnostic and treatment for skin diseases in adult, adolescent, and pediatric patients.

The Skin and Cancer Unit of the Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology, founded in 1872 as the New York Skin and Cancer Hospital, is an outpatient dermatology teaching center located at NYU Langone's Ambulatory Care Center.

Continuing its more than 140-year history of combining outstanding patient care with world-class medical education, patients of the Skin and Cancer Unit are seen by both a physician undertaking advanced dermatology training, called a resident, along with an NYU Langone physician, known as an attending physician. 

The resident and an attending physician collaborate to provide diagnostic and treatment services for virtually all skin diseases in adults, adolescents, and children. These range from common conditions such as warts, acne, and eczema, to more complex medical conditions such as connective tissue disorders, pigmented lesions, skin allergies, and skin cancers.

Our services include clinics dedicated to the following conditions:

  • acne
  • bullous (blistering) diseases like pemphigus and bullous pemphigoid
  • complex medical dermatology problems
  • connective tissue diseases and skin lupus
  • contact dermatitis
  • cutaneous T-cell lymphoma
  • genetic and congenital skin disorders
  • hair and scalp problems
  • leg ulcers
  • nail problems
  • pediatric and adolescent dermatology
