Dr. Milan Anadkat is a board-certified dermatologist, Professor of Dermatology, and the Residency Program Director at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri.

Dr. Anadkat specializes in chemotherapy-induced skin reactions, dermatologic therapeutics, collagen vascular disease, autoimmune bullous disease, graft-versus-host disease, and psoriasis. With a clinical focus in the area of Complex Medical Dermatology and Oncodermatology, Dr. Anadkat is a national leader in the field of Dermatologic Therapeutics and chemotherapy-induced adverse reactions.


With over 45 articles published in medical journals, Dr. Anadkat’s research categorizes and manages the skin reactions patients develop as a result of systemic chemotherapy. His research interests include connective tissue disease, graft versus host disease, autoimmune bullous disease, hidradenitis suppurativa, complex medical dermatology, and chemotherapy-associated skin toxicity.

Unlike with skin reactions to other drugs, where the recommendation could be to just stop the drug, the challenge here is how to help these patients stay on cancer-fighting drugs that may be saving their lives and yet at the same time tackle the skin toxicity of that same drug.

“Dermatology is really just one piece of the pie to help determine if the skin reaction is related to the cancer treatment if it is life-threatening and can be managed. We advise oncologists so they can make the best decision for the patient.”
