Case-Based Diagnosis and Management of Skin Infections

November 26, 2022 host Hope Cook, PA-C, discusses building relationships and understanding the role of the dermatopathologist with Travis Vandergriff, MD, during the 2022 Summer Conference in Austin, Texas. “Dermatopathology can be intimidating and dry if not presented in a clinical context” said Dr. Vandergriff, a Texas-based general dermatologist and dermatopathologist. The dermatopathologist is one of your strongest allies in your clinical practice, and the more connection and communication you have with him, the better you will be able to diagnose and treat your patients.” The two professionals go on to discuss biopsies, punch biopsies and shave biopsies. And, they take a few minutes to touch on syphilis as the “great mimicker.”
