Updates on managing some of the most common dermatologic conditions for which patients seek care illuminated presentations at the Skin Disease Education Foundation's 42nd Annual Hawaii Dermatology Seminar®. This educational supplement summarizes the highlights of clinical sessions presented during this CME/CE conference. Treatment of psoriasis has continued to advance, with three interleukin (IL)-17 antagonists approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and a fourth in phase 3 trials. An authority on the use of biologics in psoriasis presents current data on the safety and efficacy of these therapies...

PURPOSE: To assess the effectiveness of lectures for continuing medical education (CME) in dermatology in a global health setting and to determine provider and patient demographics of physician assistants (PAs) practicing in rural Ghana. METHODS: Physician assistants from Ghana who attended dermatology lectures at the International Seminar for Physician Assistants in 2011 or 2014 were included in this study. Surveys were administered to participants to determine dermatology resource availability, commonly encountered skin diseases, and management practices...

INTRODUCTION: The present maldistribution of dermatologists in the USA may make it difficult for patients to access timely and quality care. Access to specialty care may be even more challenging for rural and underserved patients due to geographical limitations and other socioeconomic hardships. With over one-third of primary care patients seeking care for at least one skin problem, it is important to follow the American Academy of Dermatology Special Positioning Workgroup\'s core areas of impact regarding treatment of conditions that affect millions of patients by using a team-based approach and telemedicine technologies...

The present CME article highlights fundamental aspects with respect to the histopathology of the most common skin tumors (epidermal, adnexal, melanocytic, and mesenchymal), their laboratory workup, as well as the importance of supplementary immunohistochemical and molecular studies. The information provided is meant to assist experienced clinicians in choosing the correct biopsy technique and in interpreting dermatopathology reports, and to provide dermatology residents with a better understanding of dermatopathology...

New therapies, recent pathophysiological findings, and updated guidelines combined to create compelling presentations at the Skin Disease Education Foundation's 41st Annual Hawaii Dermatology Seminar™. This educational supplement summarizes the highlights of clinical sessions presented during this CME/CE conference. A growing understanding of the biology of psoriasis has facilitated the development of increasingly efficacious medications. Skin clearance used to be regarded as an impractical goal for psoriasis therapy...

Shingles, or herpes zoster (HZ), is a common secondary infection caused by a reactivated varicella zoster virus (VZV). More than 95% of immunocompetent individuals aged at least 50 years are seropositive for VZV and are therefore at risk for developing HZ. Age-related increased incidence of HZ and its complications are thought to be related to the decline in cell-mediated immunity. Complications of HZ, which create a significant patient and economic burden, may be neurological, ophthalmological, dermatological, or visceral...

Most patients with acne have some degree of facial scarring even after their acne resolves, extending the period of psychosocial distress. Unfortunately, management of acne scars remains challenging. Many treatments for post-acne scarring including chemical peels, skin needling, laser resurfacing, surgical repair, subcision lifting, and punch elevation lifting, are limited by moderate and unpredictable results, significant morbidity, and substantial patient investments in time and money. The most recent addition to the armamentarium is tissue augmentation with soft tissue fillers, including a recently approved polymethylmethacrylate-collagen filler...

Unexpected staining patterns can arise from problems occurring in any of the steps required for IHC, some of which are discussed in part I of this CME series. Whether used to differentiate benign from malignant tumors, identify tumor subtypes, subtypes of hematopoietic malignancies, or identifying targets for therapy, the pathologist must be intimately familiar with the potential pitfalls that are inherent in the IHC methodology to troubleshoot problems in the laboratory, and more importantly, when interpreting immunohistochemical staining, to avoid pitfalls of false-positive or false-negative stains...

The care of patients with chronic pruritus as a symptom of a wide variety of underlying diseases continues to confront dermatologists with diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. However, a structured history and a physical examination may already substantially help in narrowing down the number of potential differential diagnoses. Apart form reducing the intensity of pruritus, identification and appropriate treatment of the underlying disease are important needs of patients. If these goals doesn't lead to improvement of itch, current guidelines provide a number of topical and systemic therapies for symptomatic treatment...

BACKGROUND: Health care of patients with occupational dermatitis (OD) in the sense of suspected "BK 5101" is carried out in Germany within the optimized dermatologist's procedure and the "dermal intervention" (formerly: hierarchical multistep intervention approach) of the statutory accident insurance (UVT), respectively. OBJECTIVES AND METHODS: Dermatologists and UVT administrators are obliged to improve OD patient care by continuous quality management measures...

BACKGROUND: The Performance Improvement (PI) CME format improves physician performance in other specialties but data are lacking in dermatology. OBJECTIVE: We sought to assess the impact of a PI CME activity on physician practice patterns for patients with psoriasis, which was developed, implemented, and evaluated by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), in part to assist dermatologists in fulfilling Part IV of their Maintenance of Certification requirements...
