Kick off the 31st annual Infectious Diseases in Children Symposium with a fun and exciting mental workout. Join Dr. Eichenfield and more than 800 pediatricians and nurses to sharpen your skills on challenging dermatology issues. Listen to cases presented and see if you can make the correct diagnosis during his famous Spot the Rash session on Saturday.
Catch a glimpse of the real case presentations for 2018:
A 3-year-old Caucasian female has had papules on the inner thighs and axillary area for 11 months. There is some scaling around several of the lesions which is causing itching. The mother has been applying moisturizer twice a day without improvement.
An 8-year-old African-American female presents with a tender, oozing mass on the scalp. She was started on cephalexin 4 days ago but has not responded. She is a soccer player, recently visited her family in Fairfax, Virginia and has a 3-year cockapoo at home.
A 15-year-old rower presents with multiple indurated plaques on the legs with some small superficial erosions now present for 3.5 weeks. She plays the clarinet, rows 4-5 days a week and last travelled to Wisconsin for summer break to visit family. She has had no sign of fever, weakness, arthralgia or arthritis.
A 10-year-old Caucasian has had a linear plaque of papule with a verrucous appearance on the neck and chest for 5 years. There has been occasional itching, but no change in appearance. He has two siblings, 7 and 5-years-old, without lesions.
