The webinar will cover the importance of history taking and the fact that the diagnosis is not always what you would expect will be discussed. Detailed descriptions of the presenting signs and symptoms will be reviewed as well as the differential diagnoses and referral criteria for such cases. Further investigations that are required when examining cases will be presented, in particular the systemic investigations that are frequently necessary due to the strong association inflammatory conditions have with particular systemic conditions. The session will also cover therapeutic management and treatment regimes.

You will be able to claim one interactive CET point after attending this live session.
