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

  • Diagnose allergic contact dermatitis more effectively.
  • Recognize patterns of common skin allergens.
  • Predict likely sources of allergic contact dermatitis.

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. This session will focus on identification and management of common clinical patterns of contact dermatitis, with a primary focus on allergic contact dermatitis. Some useful patterns of irritant contact dermatitis will also be covered. Recommendations on empiric hypoallergenic regimens will discussed in addition to a review of some important co- and cross-reaction groups.
