S012 - Pearls: Diagnostic and Therapeutic

Saturday, July 28; 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Use innovative therapies for patients with complicated conditions or common maladies unresponsive to commonly effective approaches.
  • Safely and effectively utilize established medications for off label uses.
  • Improve utilization of the dermatoscope in office practice.


Audience participation is a necessary feature of a session in which we will share innovative approaches to a variety of common therapeutic and diagnostic office approaches. We will present a number of new uses for old medications, new diagnostic approaches, and a lot of off-label recommendations. Target audience is the general dermatologist on the front line. Attendees are urged to email challenging cases or favorite off-label pearls to for inclusion in our discussions. The more audience participation, the merrier.
