F147 - Atopic Dermatitis in Adults: Not Just Big Kids
Monday, February 19; 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Describe the various presentations and differential diagnosis of atopic dermatitis in adults
- Identify key differences between atopic dermatitis in children and adults
- Discuss treatment considerations for atopic dermatitis in adults
The intended audience is general adult dermatologists. Atopic dermatitis is one of the most common chronic inflammatory skin disorders encountered by dermatologists. Virtually every dermatologist has multiple patients with adult atopic dermatitis. Adults with atopic dermatitis have a number of key differences in their risk factors, triggers, presentation and clinical course than children. These often pose major clinical challenges and are often very frustrating to dermatologists. Dermatologists must be able to recognize these differences, in order to make the best treatment decisions and achieve optimal outcomes.
