The case-based format will create an active learning environment relevant to the dermatology trainee or experienced medical dermatologist. The session will offer practical tips for evaluation, diagnosis, and management of pediatric dermatoses. The session will emphasize pediatric dermatology diagnostic challenges and therapeutic dilemmas.
