Abstract:

Background/Hypothesis:  A unique caregiver burden and quality of life for the caregivers of CTCL patients exists, and as such, there may be unidentified, and thus unmet, caregiver needs.  

Objectives: The purpose of this pilot study was to determine the demographics, unique caregiver burden, quality of life issues in those caring for patients with cutaneous t-cell lymphoma and the differences in caregiver burden dependent upon disease severity.
