F125 - Pediatric Dermatology for the Adult Dermatologist
Monday, February 19; 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Identify key differences in the presentation of skin disorders in children when compared to adults.
- Appropriately manage pediatric patients with chronic skin disease, with special emphasis on our knowledge of natural history/outcomes, and optimal treatment strategies in children.
- Utilize child-centric strategies to safely and effectively perform procedures on children.
Many skin disorders are more commonly diagnosed in children; others have a unique presentation in the pediatric population. This session will help participants identify and treat skin conditions in children, with a specific focus on how this care differs from adults. The session will provide guidance to general dermatologists on a child-centric approach to inflammatory dermatoses, rheumatologic collagen vascular disease, vascular tumors and procedural dermatology. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the unique differential diagnosis for skin conditions and the challenges of treatment in this age group.
