Don’t miss symposium on advances in transplant dermatology

On Saturday, March 21, the Academy will present a new session, “Role of Dermatologist in Management of Skin Disease in Solid Organ Transplant Recipients” (S016).

This session will provide attendees with relevant, up-to-date, scientific advances in the field of transplant dermatology that pertain to clinical practice, including the emerging role of viruses in transplant dermatology, management of skin disease secondary to transplant medication, and the role of revision of immunosuppression. Analysis on the latest staging and management criteria for high risk SCC will be provided.

The symposium, led by Fiona O’Reilly Zwald, MD, will help attendees develop a management plan for the care of skin disease in solid organ transplant recipients, recognize the role of multidisciplinary care in the management of medical and surgical dermatological concerns of solid organ transplant recipients, and detect and manage aggressive skin cancer associated with these recipients.
