Some of the cases this season are so extreme, Dr. Lee teams up with specialists in order to provide the best outcome possible. Some examples of what viewers will see in these episodes are an adorable eight-year-old girl—the youngest patient yet on the series—with an extreme case of psoriasis who would like to be a dermatologist when she grows up; a man with severe keloids on the back of his head and scalp that are so challenging, it will take two doctors and, an incredibly rare case of nevus sebaceous that covers much of a woman’s face.
