Sunday, March 3; 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Formulate a systematic approach to the diagnosis, work-up, and management of vasculitis.
- Communicate successfully about vasculitis with colleagues in other fields.
- Identify and distinguish important mimickers of vasculitis.
This session will present a systematic approach to the diagnosis, work-up, and management of vasculitis presenting in the skin. Special attention will be paid to ways in which the dermatologist can use clinical clues and targeted laboratory evaluation to identify patients at-risk for important systemic complications. The discussion will be evidence-based and practical, utilizing a case-based approach. Additional cases will review important mimickers of vasculitis (including vasculopathy, hypercoaguable states, and infectious processes). The presenter is board-certified in internal medicine and dermatology with clinical and research focuses in vasculitis and inpatient dermatology consults.
