D001 - Challenging Pediatric Dermatology Cases

Friday, February 16; 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Assess infants and children with difficult to diagnose and/or treat skin eruptions.
  • Synthesize a differential diagnosis and working diagnosis for infants and children with difficult to diagnose and/or treat skin eruptions.
  • Identify issues to discuss with patients, families, and primary care providers of patients with difficult to diagnose and/or treat skin eruptions.

Description

This session on pediatric dermatology emergencies will focus on dermatologic conditions that present acutely in the nursery, office and emergency room and require the immediate development of an evaluation and treatment plan. After a brief introduction to review variable expression of emergent disorders in different pediatric age groups, seasons, and geographic locations, the session will challenge the participants to develop a differential diagnosis for blistering, palpable purpuric and nodular disorders in an emergent setting. This will include infections and infestations, cutaneous findings in child maltreatment syndrome, autoimmune disorders, as well as benign and malignant tumors of childhood.
