Christine Ko is Professor of Dermatology and Pathology.
She is board certified in dermatology with a specialty certificate in dermatopathology. Most of her time is spent in the Division of Dermatopathology, where
she renders diagnoses for skin biopsies, sent in to Yale from Yale
Dermatology Associates and other dermatology practices in
Connecticut. Dr. Ko is particularly interested in squamous cell
carcinoma and keratocanthoma. She studies such
tumors, in collaboration with researchers in the Department of
Genetics and the Division of Dermatologic Surgery. For all skin
cancer patients, she conducts rigorous screening skin
examinations on a regular basis to detect skin cancers and
to optimize prevention and therapy.
Dr. Ko cares for
patients with complex dermatologic disease such as
psoriasis, autoimmune blistering diseases (pemphigus foliaceus,
bullous pemphigoid), and connective tissue
diseases (lupus erythematosus, morphea, lichen sclerosus). Dr. Ko
also participates in the multidisciplinary vascular conference at
Yale University, working with physicians from interventional
radiology, pediatrics, and surgery.
Dr. Ko received her AB at Princeton University and MD from New York University School of Medicine. She completed internship at UCLA, and her dermatology residency at University of California, Irvine.
