COURSE DESCRIPTION: This year’s review will highlight a broad range of dermatologic problems and dilemmas that are commonly encountered by primary care physicians. There will be a heavy emphasis on case-based learning and audience participation during the small group workshops and panel presentation. By popular demand we will again be featuring actual patients to challenge your diagnostic and therapeutic skills. The most up-to-date information on skin therapeutics will be featured during the course, and there will be a special session highlighting the inappropriate or improper use of topical corticosteroids. Practical workshops will cover acne, pediatric dermatology, and skin cancer recognition. A special panel will look at the latest approaches to sorting out and treating hair loss disorders. Practical approaches to leg ulcers, facial rashes and tumors, skin problems in athletes, atopic eczema, and recognizing connective tissue disease will round out this year’s program. There will be ample opportunities for you to interact with faculty, and you are encouraged to bring along your problem cases for discussion on Sunday afternoon.

OBJECTIVES: Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  1. Describe the appropriate use of new drugs and therapies in dermatology.
  2. Describe the appropriate management of common forms of hair loss.
  3. Recognize the less commonly appreciated, but distinctive clinical features of skin cancer.
  4. Recognize the important dermatologic signs of connective tissue disease.
  5. List some common dermatoses for which topical steroids are inappropriate or unnecessary.
  6. Describe important aspects of atopic eczema therapy beyond topical corticosteroids.
  7. Outline a rational approach to leg ulcers, acne, and suspected fungal nail infections.
  8. Describe the diagnosis and treatment of common facial rashes, benign tumors and cosmetic reactions.
  9. Describe the common dermatologic problems seen in athletes.
