PEDIATRICS Grand Rounds: Common Pediatric Dermatology Management
March 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST
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.
