U058 - Lessons from an EB Referral Center: Cases I Thought Were EB That Were Not

Sunday, March 3; 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Diagnose blistering disease in neonates and children
  • Review methods of diagnosis and appropriate work-up
  • Describe benefits and challenges an EB Center provides

Description

This session will highlight benefits and challenges of caring for patients in an epidermolysis bullosa (EB) center.
