Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Formulate a diagnostic and therapeutic approach to urticarial and auto-inflammatory disorders.
  • Recognize clinical and histopathologic similarities and differences of skin diseases presenting in childhood through adulthood.
  • Distinguish between the common presentations of melanoma in children of various ages and adults.


The practice of “complex medical dermatology” applies to the care of both adults and children. This symposium will highlight a selection of hot topics and modern day challenges of managing pediatric and adult patients with complex skin diseases. We will explore differences in disease presentations and management between children and adults and the implications for adults of skin diseases that arise in childhood. Join this stellar line-up of pediatric and adult dermatologists as they share their wisdom, experience and expertise.
