Current Challenges in Dermatology (immunobullous disorder and dermatophytosis) dermalive

About This Course

lmmunobullous disorder and Dermatophytosis are one of the major challenges in Dermatology. With this Online CME we are going to cover the main issues relating to both these disorders and its treatment



  • Immunobullous Disorder
  • (IB or blistering) diseases of the skin are autoimmune disorders. Any autoimmune condition involves the immune system “attacking” its own organs or tissues by producing autoantibodies (antibodies against the self). In the skin, there are proteins that attach epidermal cells to each other and proteins that attach the epidermis to the dermis. These proteins are the glue that keeps the skin intact. When these proteins are damaged by autoantibodies, the cells separate from each other and a blister appears. The two main forms of immunobullous disease of the skin are Pemphigus and Pemphigoid.

  • Dermatophytosis
  • Dermatophyte infections are common worldwide, and dermatophytes are the prevailing causes of fungal infection of the skin, hair, and nails [1-3]. These infections lead to a variety of clinical manifestations, such as tinea pedis, tinea corporis, tinea cruris, Majocchi's granuloma, tinea capitis, and tinea unguium (dermatophyte onychomycosis).

    The clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of dermatophyte infections of the skin will be reviewed here. Dermatophyte infections of scalp hair (tinea capitis), beard hair (tinea barbae), and nails (tinea unguium) will be discussed.
