S063 - Dermatological Emergencies: The Skin As A Sentinal

Monday, March 4; 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Recognize early signs of systemic and cutaneous disease especially in acutely ill and hospitalized patients
  • Formulate a differential diagnosis and management strategy for severe and potentially life-threatening diseases with cutaneous manifestations


This session will emphasize the important role of the dermatologist as part of the care team for acutely ill patients with skin disease. Speakers will highlight common and uncommon skin and systemic manifestations, especially early signs and symptoms, to aid in more rapid recognition of potential dermatologic emergencies. Attendees will also learn strategies to more effectively evaluate and manage complex and potentially life-threatening skin diseases.
