Look-Alikes, Controversies and What’s New in Pediatric Dermatology

This lecture will compare and contrast several pediatric dermatology diagnoses, including vascular birthmarks (specifically infantile hemangiomas and capillary malformations), forms of infected atopic dermatitis, and infantile cutaneous tumors (specifically nevus sebaceous, mastocytoma, and juvenile xanthogranuloma) and highlight recent literature applicable to these topics.

Objectives: 

  1. Distinguish clinical features of infantile hemangiomas and capillary vascular malformations (i.e. port wine stains) and understand systemic implications of each
  2. Differentiate clinical features of secondary infections complicating atopic dermatitis including eczema, herpeticum, eczema coxsackium and impetiginized eczema
  3. Review the current literature regarding the risks of tumor development within nevus sebaceous birthmarks

Needs: 

  1. New advances in dermatologic treatment
  2. New methods of diagnosis or treatment
  3. Availability of new medication(s) or indication(s)
  4. Advances in medical knowledge
