Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Recognize the early clues to serious drug reactions involving the skin
  • Outline an approach to the diagnosis and treatment of pregnancy eruptions
  • Manage a range of cutaneous infestations

In 2011, the EADV and the AAD first joined forces in an effort to compliment one another and provide the audience with an expanded perspective of topics of interest to dermatologists. Speakers representing the EADV will offer insights into the treatment of cutaneous infestations and will review recent discoveries in the field of cutaneous parasitic infections. In addition, an approach to the diagnosis and treatment of pregnancy eruptions will be provided as will clues to the early diagnosis of serious drug reactions. Advances in the areas of infantile hemangiomas and pigmented lesions that are relevant to all practicing dermatologists will be presented.
