U069 - Cold Induced Skin Disease
Sunday, February 18; 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Recognize clinical features of cold induced skin diseases.
- Develop an appropriate work up to evaluate patients for underlying systemic disease
- Formulate management plans for patients with various forms of cold induced skin disorders.
A variety of skin findings can be precipitated by exposure to cold, including Raynaud's phenomenon and disease, chilblains, cold urticaria, cold panniculitis, cutis marmorata, and cryoglobulinemia. Some of these conditions can be associated with underlying systemic disease. We review the clinical features of these disorders, discuss appropriate evaluation to diagnose and detect associated systemic disease and update knowledge of the pathophysiology and treatment.
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.
