F007 - Autoimmune Blistering Diseases: What's New

Friday, March 1; 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Shorten the time to diagnose a blistering disease
  • Recognize if certain drugs may have triggered the disease to cease them
  • Select the best treatment for the patient with pemphigus and pemphigoid.


This forum will provide novel information on why certain patients are more likely genetically to develop pemphigus, EBA and MMP and what environmental threats trigger pemphigoid. The latest treatments will be reviewed for pemphigus and pemphigoid.
