Furthermore, the conference gives an idea about the multifaced encounters, varied treatments and methodologies in dermatology. For sure it will be a platform for all the innovators, researchers, organizations and scholars to figure out the contemporary advancements in the field of dermatology. A Dermatologist is a specialist in the field of dermatology who specializes in all things identified mostly with hair, skin and nails. The logical program accumulates visionaries through explorational talks and presentations which sets forward numerous interesting systems and ideologies. This dermatological conference is mainly intended on sharing exploration on skin tumour, healthy skin, treatment for skin illnesses, and amazing strategies in the field of dermatology. This conference completely covers all the aspects of dermatology from diagnosis to evaluation of dermatologic conditions through standard and emergent treatment options. Moreover, this meeting provides the scientists to discover global associates for further collaboration.


Dermatology is a branch of complex visual speciality on both medical and surgical aspects of skin, hair, nails and its sicknesses. Skin diseases have a serious impact on life and few of them can be life-threatening too. This field covers about the basic acquaintance and intuitiveness on skin structure, functions and its diseases. Similarly, this study provides an outcome about the causes, symptoms and consequences of skin pathology. Dermatological field is mainly intended on analysing about the skin treatments, diagnostic techniques, prevention and disorders of skin. Some of the deliberate diseases of skin include sub disciplines such as dermatitis, psoriasis, rosacea, scars, acne, chronic folliculitis, angiosarcomas, hair loss etc. Dermatology is mainly structured around three components such as medical, surgical and pharmacological treatments and their benefits. Since, skin is one of the sensitive organs of human body the study of this field is majorly important.

Scientific Sessions

Session 01: Dermatopathology

Dermatopathology is a branch which combines both dermatology and pathological studies. It explains about the histology of the skin which includes, Protection, thermoregulation, metabolic functions, circulation of the dermis and epidermis. Non-neoplastic disorders which are also called as tumours are one the major disorders of skin. Some of the diseases include, sarcoma, carcinoma, brain tumour, fibroid tumour etc. Body’s own tissue can cause abnormal inflammation which may result in damage to normal tissues such as, redness, swelling, stiffness, chronic pain etc. Auto immune diseases are amongst the serious one’s which include Bullous pemphigoid, Dermatitis Herpetiformis, Pemphigus Vulgaris. A dermatopathologist is a specialist who analyses skin diseases through microscope and they work in close association with clinical dermatologists.

Session 02: Cosmetic Dermatology

The impact of bioactive skin care ingredient technology and drug delivery systems have resulted in development and advancement of cosmeceuticals in the field of cosmetic dermatology. Most of the dermatological procedures can improve the appearance of the skin by treating scars, acne and wrinkles. Some of the non-surgical treatments of the body include Stretch mark removal, Schlerotherpathy vein removal, Laser tattoo removal and Zerona. Facial skin treatments include chemical peels, Thermage for the face and eyes, Laser skin surfacing and skin tightening. Dermal fillers and injectables reduce the appearance of the skin wrinkling. Similarly, popular injectable treatments include Sculptra, Restylane, and Perlane. To improve the overall appearance and the well being of the skin many chemical and mechanical skin resurfacing methods have been utilized by humans.

Session 03: Clinical Dermatology

Clinical Dermatology precise practical information on diagnosis and management of clinical disorders. Diagnosis is mainly based on the distribution of lesions and on their configuration and morphology. Depending on the diseases suggested by the morphology, skin diseases are examined and analysed. Many drugs are used as clinical protocols in treating clinical diseases. Botulinum toxin is used in clinical dermatology to treat some of the auto immune disorders such as primary hyperhidrosis and many skin diseases. The appealing of nutricosmetics lies in the increasing pursuit of wellness. The market for nutricosmetics is set to hit $7.2 billion by 2020 in which the sales of vitamins have overtook the painkillers for the first time. These drugs boost an individual’s collagen and human growth hormone production which protects the skin against radial damage.

Session 04: Psychodermatology

Psychodermatology is the treatment of skin disorders using psychological and psychiatric techniques. It is also called as the controversial speciality of dermatology. Frequently treated conditions are: psoriasis, eczema, hives, genital and oral herpes, acne, warts, skin allergies, pain and burning sensations, hair loss and compulsive skin picking and hair pulling. Psychological or psychiatric treatments are the primary treatments include relaxation, meditation, hypnosis and self-hypnosis, psychotropic medications, biofeedback, and focused psychotherapy.

Session 05: Pediatric Dermatology

A study of combination of both pediatrics and skin diseases is termed as Pediatric dermatology. A medical practitioner who is specialized in this field is called a pediatrician/ pediatric dermatologist. Children gets affected by auto immune diseases such as Juvenile Dermatomyositis which is a deliberate disorder. The clinical phenotype of myositis in children is approximately 80% and similarly, the patients with JDM often have photosensitive rashes including erythema. A very common disorder in children include anaemia which results from lack of red blood corpuscles that leads to reduced oxygen flow to body’s organs. Symptoms of anaemia are fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness etc. Splenectomy is a minimally invasive pediatric surgery in which the spleen is removed by operation. In most cases splenectomy can be performed laparoscopically by a surgeon.

Session 06: Dermatographism

A study of combination of both pediatrics and skin diseases is termed as Pediatric dermatology. A medical practitioner who is specialized in this field is called a pediatrician/ pediatric dermatologist. Children gets affected by auto immune diseases such as Juvenile Dermatomyositis which is a deliberate disorder. The clinical phenotype of myositis in children is approximately 80% and similarly, the patients with JDM often have photosensitive rashes including erythema. A very common disorder in children include anaemia which results from lack of red blood corpuscles that leads to reduced oxygen flow to body’s organs. Symptoms of anaemia are fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness etc. Splenectomy is a minimally invasive pediatric surgery in which the spleen is removed by operation. In most cases splenectomy can be performed laparoscopically by a surgeon.

Session 07: Dermatologic Drug Therapy

A branch of pharmacology which is concerned with the movement and excretion of drugs is known as pharmacokinetics. Some of the dermatological treatments include cleansing agents, anti-infective agents, antipruritics etc and the combination vehicles contain propylene and polyethylene glycol. Keratolytics is a technique which is commonly used for softening of epidermal cells and similarly Salicylic acid is used to treat acne, warts and psoriasis. Anti-histamine like Doxepin is used in treating itching of nummular dermatitis, atopic dermatitis etc. Some of the commonly used drugs are pramoxine, clindamycin, Clobetasol, bacitracin, erythromycin etc.

Session 08: Melanoma

Melanoma is a type of cancer that is developed from pigment containing cells known as melanocytes. Skin cancer is most common with increasing age, but malignant melanoma is high in younger people. About 70% people who have cancer are still alive after being diagnosed. The most aggressive form of skin cancer is melanoma. Symptoms of this type of cancer include appearance of lumps in skin, formation of acne in bones and so on. Treatments like Immunotherapy and Chemotherapy are often recommended to treat Melanoma. Usually adjuvant therapy is offered after the removal of all detectable diseases by surgical treatments. The US food and the drug administration has approved three combinations of new medications to cure melanoma. When the cancer has spread to all parts of the body, the treatments may be complex.

Session 09: Ayurveda Dermatology

Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest medical systems. This type of medicine employs the use of herbal compounds, oil massages and lifestyle changes. There have been a very few clinical trials on the use of ayurvedic medicine for dermatologic diseases. The common ingredients in ayurvedic medications include Curcuma longa (Ginger) and additionally Curcumin is used to down regulate kinases in patients with psoriasis. Since, ayurvedic medicine contains a variety of products containing herbs, there is a potential of interaction with conventional medications.

Session 10: Skin Pharmacology

Development of cutaneous disease with effects of chemical and lights is termed as drug photosensitivity. However, one or more cutaneous manifestations may occur when photoactivation of the chemical occurs. Some of the manifestations include pseudo porphyria, photo allergic reactions etc. Sun burns and non melanomal skin cancers are caused by UV-B wavelengths. Usually it is difficult to differentiate between photoallergic and phototoxic reactions. 1-2% of patients are affected with acute photosensitivity disorders. Craniofacial reconstruction is a type of technique in which the abnormalities or genetic disorders in a child’s skull or face is repaired by a plastic surgeon. With the help of plastic surgery, the skin attains proper development to regain its function and gives a normal appearance. Patients who have underwent burns on traumatic injury is mostly counselled with Face transplant therapy. Radiation therapies include X-ray therapy, electron therapy and brachytherapy.

Session 11: Neonatal Dermatology

Rashes are extremely common in new-born’s and can be a significant source of parental concern. Immaturity of skin disease structures results in Milia and Miliaria. During the first four weeks of life a variety of changes exhibit in a new-born’s skin. Physicians of the infants can identify common skin lesions and counsel parents appropriately. The most popular eruption in new-born’s is erythema Toxicum Neonatorum which is present at the time of birth but more often appears during the second or third day of life. Lesions usually occur on trunk, face and proximal extremities. 20% of the new-borns are affected by acne neonatorum which are diagnosed by lotions. Temperature regulation is fundamental immediately after the birth.

Session 12: Bariatric and aesthetical Surgery

The principle purpose of aesthetical surgery is to improve the appearance of skin. Some of the major types of aesthetical surgery on radiation therapy include rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty etc. Cosmetic surgery is growing in popularity across the world with 15.1million cosmetic procedures. Mammoplasty is one of the most prevailed techniques under aesthetical surgery in which the breast augmentation is performed using silicone gel or saline. Surgical management of morbid obesity is termed as Bariatric surgery. Operative procedures of bariatric surgery include vertical banded gastroplasty, biliopancreatic diversion/ duodenal switch and so on. Patients with hypertension and diabetes mellitus are usually treated with this type of surgery. Some of the complications are deep vein thrombosis, incisional hernia, wound dehiscence, pneumonia etc. Panniculectomy is a type of reconstructive surgery in which the patient’s excess abdominal wall fat is removed after the weight loss.

Session 13: Dermatoepidemiology

Dermatoepidemiology is an emerging discipline in dermatology. Major aspect of this branch is the determination of global burden to skin diseases. Some of the therapies include Cryosurgery, Hair transplantation, Laser therapy, radiation therapy etc. Clinical epidemiology is concerned with describing the natural history and prognosis of diseases which seek to prevent or treat diseases. Absence of melanin produced by melanocytes causes many pigmentation disorders which are examined by hyper, hypo and de- pigmentation. Some of the Pigmentation disorders include Albinism, Pityriasis alba etc.

Session 14: Genodermatoses

Geno dermatoses are genetic diseases with cutaneous expression. The estimation of genetic risks requires accuracy and thus genetic counselling is important in dermatological practice. Some are characterized particularly by alterations in the normal keratinization process referred as Geno keratoses. Permanent defect in dermal epidermal adhesion causes epidermolysis bullosa. The diagnostic methods include Electron microscope examination and so on. Xeroderma Pigmentosum is a genetic disorder of DNA repair in which the ability to repair damage caused by ultraviolent is deficient. The treatment for this disorder includes cryotherapy and avoiding exposure to sunlight etc. Only 40% of the individuals with this disease survive beyond the age of 20. Some of the congenital malformations and deformations of skin diseases ichthyosis vulgaris, X linked ichthyosis etc.

Session 15: Emerging Drugs For Dermatitis

A group of diseases that results in inflammation of the skin is known as dermatitis. Some of the dermatitis are most common in adults whereas, some are common in adults. Symptoms of this disorder include blisters, itchy skin, redness, swelling and rashes. Common types of dermatitis are Atopic, Seborrheic, dyshidrotic dermatitis. Risk factors are like environment, allergy, health conditions and asthma. A dermatologist may perform a skin biopsy under a microscope to help to diagnose the cause. Treatments for this type of disorders include phototherapy, creams or lotions for dry skin, oatmeal baths to relieve itching, medications to reduce allergies and itching. There are some of the alternative therapies like acupuncture, massage and yoga to reduce stress. Dietary supplements such as vitamin D and probiotics helps to manage those symptoms of the disease.

Session 16: Dermatoscopy

This instrument is very useful in diagnosing Melanoma disorders. The main modes of dermatoscopy includes Non- polarized light and polarized light. Digital dermatoscopy is used in storage of images and some of the common systems of this instrument include Fotofinder, Easy scan and Molemax. Hair and scalp diseases such as Alopecia areata, wooly hair syndrome are diagnosed by trichoscopy. One of the typical application of dermatoscopy is early detection of melanoma.

Session 17: Deliberate Issues

The approach to the clinically uninvolved regional Lymph nodes for melanoma patients has been the ongoing controversary in the field of dermatology. Cryosurgery has been used as a treatment for a variety of cutaneous lesions. Different techniques are available in cryosurgery, but the clinician must be very careful in assessment of each patient with the appropriate use of cryotherapy. Lots of effects and complications are involved in handling cryosurgery so proper management should be instituted by the clinicians. Tattoos are considered as single dose exposure and controlling the safety of tattoo inks by banning potential chemicals is unsuccessful due to lack of documentation of clinical and epidemiological relevance. Tattoo complications are very complicated with many entities and disease mechanisms and thus they are a new sub speciality in medicine and dermatology.

Session 18: Current Therapies

The development of new targets for psoriasis treatment has instituted many new therapies on the field of dermatology. Firstly, the patient should be addressed with educational and psychological needs. A resource named National Psoriasis foundation is offering patients about the social implications and a host of materials on how to manage the disease. Some patients are treated with topical treatments and some of them can be treated directly on phototherapy or systemic treatments. Steroids pulse therapies in dermatology are most commonly used for auto immune conditions and inflammatory disorders as they are less toxic. The administration of supra therapeutic steroids in intermittent manner to enhance the therapeutic effects is termed as pulse therapy. 

Session 19: Tele dermatology

Exchange of medical information over a distance using audio, visual and data communication with the help of telecommunication technologies is termed as tele dermatology. Tele medicine and e-health are the most commonly used applications. Tele dermatology helps to reduce time and costs. Mobile Telemedicine is a system in which at least one participant uses handheld devices in contrast to conventional stationary telemedicine platforms. Tele dermatopathology is the transmission of dermatopathologic images either in real-time with the aid of a robotic microscope or using a store-and-forward system.
