Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Recognize and diagnose some skin conditions that are associated with systemic disease
  • Design an evaluation schema for patients with potential systemic manifestation of skin disease
  • List the medical means of managing patients with skin disease

There are more systemic disease associations and medical means of treating skin disease than we have time to cover in a 3 hour session. This year I have selected 6 topics that we will focus on which include some of our most common diseases (e.g. psoriasis and NMSC) to those that perplex us in terms of evaluation and management (e.g. sarcoidosis, vasculitis and bullous diseases).
