Program Description

A growing understanding of rosacea pathophysiology and the emergence of treatments that target specific manifestations of the disorder, including persistent facial erythema, are advancing the quality of care. A clearer sense of diagnostic criteria and the advantages and limitations of the scope of therapies is essential so dermatologists and other clinicians who manage patients with rosacea can devise treatment plans that are tailored to the pattern and severity of individual patients’ symptoms across the rosacea spectrum.

This Case Clinic, which focuses on the management of a patient who presents with facial redness plus papulopustular lesions, is the first in a series of 3 illustrating different clinical challenges in rosacea management that together fulfill the educational objectives outlined below. We urge you to complete all 3 case activities for the most complete educational experience.

Intended Audience

Dermatologists and other healthcare professionals who provide care for patients with rosacea

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Describe current theories of the pathophysiology of rosacea
  • Identify the spectrum of clinical signs and symptoms of rosacea, including its characteristic persistent facial erythema
  • Assess the risks, benefits, safety profile, and limitations of current and emerging treatments for rosacea
  • Individualize rosacea treatment plans according to specific manifestations, symptom severity, and other patient characteristics
  • Counsel and educate patients with rosacea to ensure correct and consistent adherence to treatment recommendations
