Introduction of department

We provide high-quality medical cares for cutaneous disorders, but especially for allergic skin diseases, such as atopic dermatitis, intractable urticaria, and contact dermatitis.

We have been authenticated as GA2LEN UCARE (the Global Allergy and Asthma European Network, Urticaria Center of Reference and Excellence) since August 2016.

We also deal with a wide variety of severe and/or difficult-to-treat cutaneous disorders including infectious diseases, connective tissue diseases and cutaneous lymphomas.

Moreover, we perform surgery for malignant skin tumors and severe burn, as necessary.
