Updates in Neutrophilic and Pustular Dermatoses
Friday, March 21
7:15 AM - 8:45 AM
Haley Naik, MD
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Recognize complex and monogenic pustular and neutrophilic dermatoses.
- Select targeted therapies for patients with pustular and neutrophilic dermatoses based on best available evidence from the literature.
Neutrophilic and pustular dermatoses are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Recently-defined monogenic diseases have provided insights into pathogenic mechanisms that may play a role in the development of diseases like generalized pustular psoriasis, palmoplantar pustulosis, pyoderma gangrenosum and hidradenitis suppurativa. This session will introduce the distinguishing morphologic characteristics and important extracutaneous manifestations of monogenic diseases including DIRA, DITRA, CAMPS and PAPA syndrome. We will discuss how these rare diseases might inform our approach to the evaluation and management of complex neutrophilic and pustular diseases, and propose a revised disease classification.
