Pediatric skin diseases play an important role in primary health care institutions and are commonly seen in daily routine of Pediatricians and Dermatologists. A broad spectrum of skin conditions affecting all ages from newborns to adolescents may be encountered. Prompt and correct diagnosis requires visual skills to recognize specific patterns and peculiarities of pediatric skin.
Pediatric Dermatology today stands for a lot more than treating eczema and rashes with creams which is well reflected by the program of this event. This Swiss national training course takes place every two years in order to teach Dermatology residents in training as well as fully qualified Dermatologists, Pediatricians and General Practitioners. It includes common skin problems which are relevant in daily practice but also some focus topics of more advanced content. Experts in the field will give insights into new strategies of treating pediatric psoriasis, atopic dermatitis as well as vascular anomalies, which more and more include targeted systemic therapies, that should not be withheld from children only because they are children. Many of us are experiencing scabies infestations on the rise and encounter difficult to treat cases in the very young age group of infants and toddler. Thus this topic is in focus, among other infectious skin diseases and common problems such as hair loss, acne and congenital developmental anomalies in infants.
We are very pleased to have been able to commit renown experts from abroad to contribute to this meeting, including Mario Cutrone from Venice (Neonatal Dermatology), Nicole Knöpfel from London (Mosaic Disorders), Smajl Hadj-Rabia from Paris (Genetic Skin Diseases) and Elena B. Hawryluk from Boston (Melanocytic Lesions). We are very much looking forward to your participation!
