This session presents 25 case-based ABD approved questions which apply towards MOC Component 2 self-assessment requirements. Answers are recorded via an electronic Audience Response System (ARS), followed by discussion of the case. Immediate, anonymous feedback allows attendees to assess their knowledge and identify areas that require further self-directed study. In order to fully participate, it is imperative that participants arrive on time. Attendees will review clinical findings of important genodermatoses in children including tuberous sclerosis, neurofibromatosis type 1, and Rothmund-Thomson. An update on vascular anomalies in children, including infantile hemangiomas and congenital hemangiomas, will be reviewed. Epidemiology of important pediatric dermatology infections and infestations will be discussed.
