Practice and Educational Gaps in Genodermatoses.
Dermatol Clin. 2016 Jul;34(3):303-10
Authors: Schaffer JV
In the past 2 decades, there has been enormous progress in determining the molecular bases of genodermatoses. This progress has expanded the interface between dermatology and genetics. Integration of clinical and molecular data has simplified disease classification and highlighted relationships among conditions. However, the recent explosion in genetic knowledge has not yet been fully incorporated into clinical dermatology practice or dermatology resident education. This article highlights strategies to overcome barriers and correct practice and educational gaps, enhancing the ability of dermatologists to diagnose, counsel, evaluate, and treat patients and families affected by genodermatoses.
