Mark A. Lerman, DMD
The oral manifestations of multiple dermatologic diseases may resemble each other clinically, but it is critical for providers to be able to accurately distinguish them in order to ensure their patients receive the correct treatment. This seminar will review the etiology, epidemiology, clinical features, and management for common mucosal conditions that may or may not present with cutaneous manifestations. There will be an emphasis on salient features of the patient history and how to select appropriate diagnostic methods to arrive at a definitive diagnosis.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees will be able to:
• Formulate reasonable differentials for oral mucosal diseases based on clinical presentations and histories
• Select appropriate diagnostic techniques for arriving at definitive diagnoses
• Assess when patients are best served with referral to specialists, or when they may be managed locally
• Write prescriptions for appropriate immune-suppressive medications and/or antimicrobial agents
