F091 - What's That? Syndrome Update
Sunday, March 3; 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Recognize genetic syndromes associated with disordered pigmentation.
- Diagnose genetic skin disorders that increase internal cancer risk.
- Distinguish genetics disorders of connective tissue.
Using clinical examples, this session will focus on recognizable genetic skin syndromes (genodermatoses) that are associated with underlying features and disease. The session is directed to clinicians and individuals interested in learning clinical phenotypes and current concepts about genetic disease affecting the skin. Connective tissue diseases (e.g. Ehlers-danlos syndrome), single gene cancer predisposition syndromes (e.g. Lynch syndrome, Birt-Hogg-Dube) and pigmentation disorders (e.g. cutaneous mosaicism) will be emphasized.
