Description


This activity is part of a 16-course series designed to equip licensed practitioners from medical, nursing, and related disciplines with a multidisciplinary approach to managing patients with atopic dermatitis (AD), also known as eczema. 

4. Eczema Mimickers Case Study

Distinguishing various types of inflammatory skin conditions can challenge even the most experienced dermatologist, and this is often true in the case of eczema. This activity will specify how AD differs from other frequently encountered skin conditions, such as psoriasis, contact allergies, drug rashes, and other eczema mimickers. A practical approach to the differential diagnosis of AD will be presented.

Educational Objectives

After completing this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Review specific findings in the physical exam of the skin that indicate eczema mimickers
  • Examine and evaluate the utility of available tests in the diagnosis of AD
  • Construct a list of relevant skin conditions that are part of the differential diagnosis of AD and apply it to clinical scenarios
