Autoimmune skin diseases are conditions such as lupus, scleroderma, dermatomyositis, pemphigoid, lichen planus, and pemphigus that can affect many parts of the body including the skin. Many of these skin diseases are rare, complicated to treat and have a great impact on the quality of life of patients.

The University of Utah Department of Dermatology offers a specialty autoimmune clinic designed to evaluate and treat patients with autoimmune conditions that have skin involvement. We see our patients simultaneously by multiple board certified dermatologists that specialize in autoimmune skin diseases. This allows for a more extensive evaluation and treatment approach.

Clinic Hours:
Thursdays 1pm-5pm; there may be some variation to better meet patients’ needs. 

Clinic location:
Midvalley Health Center
243 E 6100 S
Murray, UT 84107

New patient appointments require a referral from your current provider. Call 801-581-2955 or make an online appointment request to schedule an appointment with a related autoimmune specialist after you have received your physician referral.
