Caroline Colmant, MD

Presentation: Pediatric primary lymphedema

Dr Caroline Colmant is a MD at the Department of Dermatology in the University Hospital of Leuven, Belgium. She completed her master of dermatology and venerology at the Saint-Luc University Hospital in Brussels in 2017. Her strong interest in paediatric dermatology was there aroused and during that period, she obtained the interuniversity diploma in paediatric dermatology at the University of Nice. 

The choice for an additional training in paediatric dermatology was therefore very natural: she continued her education with a fellowship in paediatric dermatology at the Sainte-Justine Hospital in Montreal (Canada), between 2018 and 2021. 

She now begins her career as paediatric dermatologist with various interests.
