F115 - Big Rashes in Little Patients
Monday, March 4; 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Recognize the spectrum of cutaneous manifestations of inflammatory disorders and infections in pediatric patients.
- Identify distinctive cutaneous features and extracutaneous associations of inflammatory dermatoses, reactive eruptions, and infections in children.
- Formulate appropriate management plans for pediatric rashes.
Rashes with inflammatory and infectious etiologies often have different clinical appearances, time courses, and associated features in infants and children than in adults. This session provides an update on new and under-recognized cutaneous presentations of pediatric infections, reactive conditions, and inflammatory dermatoses. Case-based scenarios will be utilized to provide clinical pearls, highlight the differential diagnosis, and illustrate strategies for evaluation and management. Topics will range from rashes associated with connective tissue diseases and infections to those presenting in hospitalized patients to common outpatient challenges.
