CLEVELAND — Patients with rosacea, livedoid vasculopathy and allergic contact dermatitis present with a multitude of dermatologic symptoms that rheumatologists can easily misdiagnose as rheumatic diseases, according to Anthony Fernandez, MD, PhD, of the Cleveland Clinic.
However, he noted that rheumatologists can distinguish these dermatological conditions from their common rheumatic lookalikes — acute lupus, vasculitis and dermatomyositis — by paying attention to onset timing, chronicity and their associated symptoms.
