U005 - The Red Patient: An Overview of Erythroderma

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

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Develop a differential diagnosis of the causes of erythroderma.
  • Formulate an evaluation for a patient with erythroderma.
  • Recognize the systemic complications of erythroderma.


This session on erythroderma will focus on dermatologic conditions that present both chronically in the office and acutely in the emergency room. Erythroderma is the clinical presentation of a wide range of cutaneous and systemic diseases including psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, drug hypersensitivity reactions, and more rarely Sézary syndrome. After a review of the differential diagnosis of erythroderma as well as its systemic complications, cases will be presented as a basis to further the discussion on workup and therapeutic options. Participation will be encouraged through the use of the audience response system. This activity has been approved by the American Board of Dermatology (ABD) for up to 10 MOC Component 2 Self-Assessment points. For more information about MOC, please visit the ABD website at www.abderm.org.
