PEDIATRICS Grand Rounds: Common Pediatric Dermatology Management

March 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST

Joyce M. Teng MD, PhD
Director of Pediatric Dermatology, Director of Pediatric Dermatology Fellowship, Clinical Professor of Dermatology and Pediatrics, Department of Dermatology and Pediatrics, Stanford University School of Medicine, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford

Presented By: Joyce M. Teng MD, PhD

There is compelling evidence that demonstrates the useful and necessary incorporation of dermatology consults in a hospital pediatric inpatient setting. The pediatric emergency room is a frequent area where skin misdiagnosis may commonly occur necessitating the need for a dermatologist consult.  The most common misdiagnosing offenders in the pediatric population are infectious disease-related skin conditions, atopic dermatitis, and inflammatory skin conditions. As with the adult population, the change to a more definitive diagnosis by a pediatric dermatologist may assist in treatment and subsequent management in pediatric dermatology.

Desired Outcomes:

  • Explain common and uncommon presentations of frequently encountered pediatric skin disorders.
  • Employ management updates and novel therapies for inflammatory skin disorders and birthmarks.
  • Summarize new practice guidelines for adolescent acne.
  • Apply tools to work with chronic skin diseases.
