S044 - Managing Tough Real Life Dermatology Cases

Sunday, February 18; 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Manage tough-to-treat disorders
  • Recognized key diagnostic features
  • Consider alternative treatment modalities


A faculty of experienced clinicians will present tough-to-manage real life patients, and how each situation was handled. The faculty is asked to focus on conditions that present to clinicians in private practice, and cases alternate between medical, surgical and pediatric derm topics -- there will be something of interest for everyone. We use an audience response system and encourage interaction with the audience and other members of the panel. This activity has been approved by the American Board of Dermatology (ABD) for up to 30 MOC Component 2 Self-Assessment points.
