Director: Stephen P. Stone, MD, FAAD - Handout


  • Joseph B. Bikowski, MD, FAAD
  • Stuart M. Brown, MD, FAAD - Handout
  • Ronald C. Hansen, MD
  • Mark Lebwohl, MD, FAAD - Handout

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

  • Use innovative therapies for patients with complicated conditions, or common maladies unresponsive to commonly effective approaches.
  • Safely and effectively utilize established medications for off label uses.

Faculty will present innovative approaches to some treatment-resistant dermatologic problems, some using newer drugs and treatments, others reaching back to therapies that worked in the past but may have been forgotten. Off-label and ABM (anecdote based management) will predominate, with a few evidence-based pearls as well. Target audience is the office-based dermatologist. Participants are urged to e-mail challenging cases to drspstone@gmail.com in advance of the meeting for discussion by the faculty. The more audience participation, the merrier!
