Open admission to eligible categories, no tuition or ticket

CME Credits: 1.50

Location: Room B116/117

Time: 7:15 AM - 8:45 AM

Director: Haley Naik, MD, FAAD

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

  • Recognize complex and monogenic neutrophilic and pustular dermatoses.
  • Choose appropriate testing to evaluate and monitor patients with neutrophilic and pustular dermatoses.
  • Select targeted therapies for patients with neutrophilic and pustular dermatoses based on best available evidence from the literature.

Neutrophilic and pustular dermatoses constitute a disease spectrum associated with significant morbidity and mortality. This session will discuss distinguishing morphologic characteristics and important extracutaneous manifestations of these diseases. Advances in evaluation and management of these conditions will be presented. Recently-defined neutrophilic and pustular diseases, and their impact on our understanding of neutrophilic disease pathogenesis, will be examined. We will also explore how our growing understanding of pathophysiology can be used to inform targeted therapeutic approaches and a revised disease classification. A case-based approach will be utilized to highlight relevance for both clinicians in practice and those in training.
