Actinic Keratosis to Zoster – A Discussion on Facial Skin Anatomy and Pathology
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are well-equipped to provide care for a wide range of facial skin pathology. This 60-minute webinar discusses facial skin anatomy and prepares surgeons to formulate a well-organized differential diagnosis of dermatopathology. In addition, a review of biopsy, histopathology and imaging in the evaluation of skin lesions will be presented along with specific treatment strategies. The course will emphasize the oral and maxillofacial surgeon’s ability to care for head and neck skin lesions in the practice.
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Express a clear understanding of the differential diagnosis of dermatopathology.
- Review biopsy techniques, histopathology and imaging in the evaluation of skin lesions.
- Identify treatment strategies and evaluate outcomes.
