U002 - Inpatient Dermatology from Horses to Zebras: Lessons Learned at an Academic Hospital

Friday, February 16; 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Diagnose and evaluate inpatient dermatologic emergencies.
  • Formulate a differential diagnosis for challenging inpatient consultations.
  • Coordinate multidisciplinary management and collaborate with inpatient medical and surgical specialties.


Inpatient dermatology consultations are challenging as patients often have multiple medical problems, are on many medications, and have the potential to develop severe systemic sequelae. The role of the astute dermatologist in recognizing cutaneous signs in the hospitalized patient and coordinating interdisciplinary care makes a significant difference in prognosis and management. In an interactive case-based format, we will review a subset of routine dermatologic emergencies and unusual inpatient consultations. This session is targeted to dermatology residents, general dermatologists, and dermatologists that see hospital consults.
