Instructional Course - Requires Course Pass or Individual Course Ticket, Additional Registration Required
In this course, we will provide a systematic framework for the diagnosis and management of dermatologic conditions that impact urologic practice. Despite receiving relatively little focus during residency training, dermatologic problems of the genitalia frequently affect urologic patients and create diagnostic dilemmas for practicing urologists. Our ultimate goal is to provide a structured basis for the practicing urologist to (a) diagnose classes of dermatologic conditions that may affect the genitalia and those that may have systemic ramifications to the patient as a whole; (b) identify skin conditions that can be realistically managed by a urologist in practice; (c) identify skin conditions that require subspecialty referral to a dermatologist for more sophisticated treatment; and (d) recognize the rare dermatologic emergency in urologic patients requiring urgent intervention. Although primarily a didactic curriculum, we will lean heavily on visual cues during physical examination and present diverse clinical images to aid diagnosis. Participants should leave the course with a basic foundation in the diagnosis and management of dermatologic conditions affecting the genitalia which they can apply directly to practice.
