WORLD SKIN HEALTH DAY IN GUINEA – 4th Edition (January 23-31, 2023)

Theme: “Dermatology at the service of the community”

 

A. Background: The purpose of the World Skin Health Day (WSHD) is to recognize and promote skin health in the world. In stemmed in 2012 from the International League of Dermatological Societies (ILDS) and the International Society of Dermatology (ISD) and there have been several official WSHD activities in countries worldwide, totalling a reach of more than 11 million people.Around the world, members of the ILDS and ISD undertake activities to recognize and promote skin health; including Screening clinics, care activities, public seminars, marches and social media campaigns, the campaign has a global reach. Taking part in WSHD helps raise awareness of the wider impact of skin diseases, as well as supporting people in need of treatment in their communities local.

 

 

B. Why skin health? Skin diseases are one of the most common human diseases. The 11th revision of the WHO International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) includes more than 2,000 skin diseases or related to the skin. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, there are in fact more than 3,000 diseases of skin and the dermatologist is in charge of the management of these pathologies. It permeates all cultures, occurs at all ages and affects between 30% and 70% of individuals, with even higher rates in at-risk subpopulations (Hay R, Bendeck SE, Chen S, et al 2014). However, skin conditions and diseases are often ignored or given low priority by health authorities because they do not, on the whole, kill people (WHO 2005). Skin diseases also have a serious impact on people’s quality of life, leading to loss of productivity at work and school, and discrimination due to disfigurement. In many regions of the world, people with skin conditions do not have access to support and adequate treatment. In view of this, the ILDS and ISD initiated the WSHD initiatie to help raise awareness and better understand skin diseases. During these days, the communities of areas underserved in management of dermatoses are provided with adequate skin care free of charge.

 

 

C. About-The International League of Dermatological Societies (ILDS): The International League of Dermatological Societies (ILDS) is a non-governmental organization that promotes the improvement of skin care, education and science throughout the world. It brings together more than 190 member companies from more than 80 countries. The ILDS has access to the experience of over 200 000 dermatologists. We celebrate and share the wide range of approaches to health and disease of the skin that exist in the world.-The International Society of Dermatology (ISD) was founded in 1959. The organization was initially the “Society Association of Tropical Dermatology”. The Society was then particularly interested in the dermatology world and tropical skin diseases, but since covers also all aspects of dermatology such as basic sciences, venereology and public health and to teaching dermatology in developing countries.-Dermatological Clinic: The mission of the Dermatological Clinic is to provide adequate dermatological care that contribute to improving the quality of life of patients. It allows quick consultations and affordable as well as accurate diagnoses and treatment plans via a web and mobile platform secured with an autonomous and affordable payment option. Various barriers limiting access to Dermatologist consultations are then eliminated.

Dermoscopy in general dermatology

Although traditionally used for evaluation of skin tumors, dermoscopy continuously gains appreciation in other fields of dermatology. The dermoscopic patterns of several inflammatory and infectious skin diseases have already been described, and the technique has been shown to improve clinical performance in terms of differential diagnosis in the daily practice. In this presentation, an up-to-date summary of data on dermoscopy in general dermatology will be provided, attempting to assist attendees to profitably utilize and apply the available knowledge in the everyday practice.

Rules and clues for recognizing difficult melanomas

Dermoscopists main goal is to detect melanomas as early as possible. In our everyday practice, we encounter different clinical scenarios. Advanced melanomas are easiest to diagnose, even without dermatoscopy, they are clinically obvious. The majority of cases are clinically suspicious, fulfilling ABCD criteria and diagnosis is made upon clinical presentation and confirmed bydermoscopy. About 12% of melanomas are clinically completely bland, they dont show any of the ABCD features, often imitating a wide range of benign tumors. They are the most difficult to diagnose, sometimes even with dermatoscopy, and when that happens, when morphology is not enough we must apply some rules in order to achieve the diagnosis. I will present you with 5 challenging cases and 10 basic rules that would help you recognize these melanomas in disguise.

Inflammoscopy-shortening the diagnostic path in inflammatory diseasses

Dermatoscopy is generally regarded as a tool for skin cancer screening. Yet, lets analyse what is the ratio of such patients in our everyday practice in comparison to the ones with inflammatory skin diseases. Some of the latter are clinically obvious, but some have non-stereotypical presentations that may take us weeks until we realize what we deal with. Fortunately, we are armed with a low-cost and easy to apply device that can make the diagnostic process faster, cheaper and less burdensome for the patient. This lecture would be a revision of dermatoscopic patterns of common inflammatory diseases to unmask the suspects and narrow the list of differentials.

Allergic contact dermatitis: mechanisms and prevention of a significant occupational disease

Contact allergies are one of the crucial challenges of public health. 20% of the general population is estimated to suffer from contact allergy, and the prevalence is rising worldwide. In addition, 1334% of all occupational diseases are attributed to skin diseases. Contact dermatitis constitutes 9095% of them. Allergic contact dermatitis can severely affect patients professionally and lead to unemployment. Certain government regulations and directives are proved to be highly effective in reducing exposure of the workforce and consumers to contact allergens. However, lack of comprehensive epidemiological data impedes widespread implementation of such public health initiatives. In this 10 minute-presentation, epidemiology, pathophysiology, and management of allergic contact dermatitis are highlighted with an emphasis on successful prevention initiatives and a case study of atopic dermatitis with multiple allergies is demonstrated.

Scalp folliculitis

Scalp folliculitis is a relatively common condition in dermatological practice, but the diagnosis is challenging because of overlapping features, both clinically and histopathologically. It is important to recognize non-infectious causes of folliculitis (eg, oesinophilic folliculitis)from infectious causes, among which the most common are bacteria and fungi. The adequate diagnostic procedures result in correct diagnosis and successful therapeutic outcomes.

Prise en charge de la vulvo-vaginite candidosique

La vulvo-vaginite candidosique est une pathologie très fréquente. La forme aiguë, la plus fréquente, ne pose habituellement pas de difficulté diagnostique et thérapeutique. Ce n’est pas le cas de la forme récidivante, dont le diagnostic est souvent retardé. Il faut donc connaître les particularités cliniques et thérapeutiques de la vulvo-vaginite candidosique récidivante, qui font l’objet de cette présentation (en français).

Post Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hypopigmentation treated with Microneedling and Bimatoprost 0.03% topical

The interest of the presentation is due to the fact that hypopigmented lesions (of different etiologies) are highly stigmatizing and have a great psychological impact on patients. And all this is magnified in patients with high phototype skin. Although the experience is still little, I have recently published a case where I have re-pigmented hypopigmentation generated with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) on the face.
