Good summary for Medschool
By Dagbjört G. on 12. December 2017 for Infectious Skin Diseases

Excellent summary for any medical student in their Dermatology practice.

Great overview. Wish that dermatology covered more topics, though.
By Shakera S. on 17. October 2017 for Toxic Shock Syndrome and Necrotizing Fasciitis (Flesh-Eating Disease)

Great overview. Wish that dermatology covered more topics, though. I enjoyed this overall. I like the transcript section. It allows me to review the material and read the speakers words verbatim. This is wonderful for all types of learning.

what about...?
By Laurent E. on 29. May 2017 for Erysipelas and Molluscum Contagiosum

Interesting but a little light on my point of view. I am a resident working in France to become an emergency doctor and honestly i would have enjoy to have a differential diagnosis guide between erysipelas and DVT for instance or other similar looking skin disorders. Often receiving elderly patients at emergency, it is sometimes hard do make a difference (clinically i mean) between erysipelas and "ocre dermite" also called purpuric angiodermatitis, part of post thrombotic syndrome. What about the "portal of entry" in erysipelas we have to look for? what about the difference in aspect between cellulitis and erysipelas, one having more delimited and visible border than the other? Anyway thank you for this lecture :)
