Dermatologic adverse events can present differently in patients with skin of color (SOC) than in White patients. In this episode, Candrice R. Heath, MD (@DrCandriceHeath), talks to Sarah J. Noor, MD, and medical student Dulce Barrios about how skin toxicities from systemic cancer therapies and radiation treatment manifest in SOC patients, particularly in the form of pigmentary changes. “We really need to understand the pathogenesis or etiology of this discoloration, because I think when this is the initial presenting feature, it’s possible … even though it looks more just like hyperpigmentation on the skin, that there is some underlying inflammatory process going on,” Dr. Noor explains. They also discuss barriers that limit participation of SOC patients in oncology clinical trials.

Dr. Noor and Ms. Barrios’s poster from the Skin of Color Society (@SkinOfColor) Scientific Symposium won the Best Oral Presentation Advancing Skin of Color Dermatology “Facing the Future Award.”
