Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Recognize situations and conditions that warrant systemic therapy and/or further workup in pediatric patients.
- Identify and compare treatment options for conditions such as severe psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, hidradenitis and immunobullous diseases.
- Develop an approach for the evaluation and management of major genetic skin conditions and complex hemangiomas.
The dermatologist is at times faced with challenging, severe disease in children and adolescents. This session discusses the principles and practice of using systemic and multimodal therapy in the pediatric population. Inflammatory conditions such as severe atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, hidradenitis, and immunobullous diseases will be reviewed, along with complicated hemangiomas. In addition, children may present with findings suspicious for a genetic disorder and approaches to their workup and management will be presented. Clinical scenarios will be used in illustration.
