Learning objectives

  • Use of the provocation tests to distinguish the types of inducible urticarias and know differential diagnosis with other dermatological conditions
  • Perform the cutaneous provocation test according to the protocols, which are necessary for the identification of inducible urticaria and that allow the assessment of its severity by looking for useful thresholds in e.g., cold, solar, cholinergic and other forms of inducible urticaria
  • Assessment of disease control of the chronic inducible urticaria during the treatment by using an specific validated questionnaire
  • To decide when to prescribe and test patients, to distinguish the types of immediate contact skin reaction and differential diagnosis with other dermatological conditions
  • Decide and perform the provocation test, which is necessary to do the etiology diagnosis of immediate contact skin reaction such as contact urticaria or protein contact dermatitis, such as prick testing and others
  • Identify types of delayed contact dermatitis, eczematous or not, and differential diagnosis
  • Be familiar with indications and contraindications for patch testing

Level of proficiency

Dermatologists and fellows in dermatology that want to learn or update practical aspects with available diagnostic tests or test devices in different dermatological allergic diseases.

Course overview

The workshop will focus on theoretical and practical aspects to correctly diagnose etiologically immunologic cutaneous disorders. These conditions include dermatitis / eczema (contact or atopic) and urticaria (acute or chronic) trigger by environmental stimuli and agents. Its clinical identification would need some specialized complementary tests in order to typify the responsible agent, assess severity, implement correct treatment and also preventive measures. For this is essential a training. How to identify and demonstrate type I and type IV hypersensitivity in cutaneous Immunol allergic diseases and how to make a correct differential diagnosis of inducible chronic urticarias is the main goal of this workshop.
