Genetic skin diseases

Basic-Derm-Curriculum-header.jpg The purpose of this module is to help develop a clinical approach to the evaluation and initial management of patients presenting with genodermatoses.

By completing this module, the learner will be able to:

  • Identify and describe the morphology of skin lesions typical of tuberous sclerosis, neurofibromatosis type 1, and Sturge-Weber Syndrome.
  • Summarize the clinical manifestations of these three genodermatoses.
  • Describe the clinical features and summarize the clinical findings of genetic disorders other than NF1 associated with café au lait macules.

The AAD has partnered with the Society of Pediatric Dermatology (SPD) to produce a series of pediatric dermatology-specific modules for the AAD's Basic Dermatology Curriculum (BDC).  The topics for these modules were selected by pediatric dermatologists as topics not currently addressed within the BDC.
