  • “I love helping kids achieve healthy skin so they can feel their best.”

As a doctor, my approach is to build trusted partnerships with families and children so that I can understand their treatment goals and help them achieve these goals in ways that are most comfortable for them. Its important to me that both parents and children feel heard and understood.

Its incredibly rewarding to empower kids through healthier skin, which can mean advocating for just the right treatment and discovering new and improved treatments. I love helping kids achieve healthy skin so they can feel their best. Im dedicated to connecting patients with clinical research trials and contributing to research on specific skin conditionsparticularly hemangiomas, birthmarks, and PHACE syndrome. My research also aims to develop solutions to health disparities through improved access to pediatric dermatologists and treatments.

It is a joy to care for kids as they grow from infants, to children, to successful teens. Having a skin condition can be challenging. I love helping kids have healthy skin so they can focus on having fun!

Executive Summary: Consensus Recommendations for the Use of Retinoids in Ichthyosis and Other Disorders of Cornification in Children and Adolescents. Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology Zaenglein, A. L., Levy, M. L., Stefanko, N. S., Benjamin, L. T., Bruckner, A. L., Choate, K., Craiglow, B. G., DiGiovanna, J. J., Eichenfield, L.

Abstract

Topical and systemic retinoids are often used long-term in the treatment of ichthyoses and other disorders of cornification. The Pediatric Dermatology Research Alliance (PeDRA) Use of Retinoids in Ichthyosis Work Group was formed to address the numerous clinical concerns with use of these medications in children and adolescents and to establish best practices regarding the use of retinoids. Consensus was achieved using the Delphi process with recommendations based on the best available evidence and expert opinion. An executive summary of the results is presented herein.

Abstract

Topical and systemic retinoids have long been used in the treatment of ichthyoses and other disorders of cornification. Due to the need for long-term use of retinoids for these disorders, often beginning in childhood, numerous clinical concerns must be considered. Systemic retinoids have known side effects involving bone and eye. Additionally, potential psychiatric and cardiovascular effects need to be considered. Contraceptive concerns, as well as the additive cardiovascular and bone effects of systemic retinoid use with hormonal contraception must also be deliberated for patients of childbearing potential. The Pediatric Dermatology Research Alliance (PeDRA) Use of Retinoids in Ichthyosis Work Group was formed to address these issues and to establish best practices regarding the use of retinoids in ichthyoses based on available evidence and expert opinion.

Costello syndrome: Clinical phenotype, genotype, and management guidelines. American journal of medical genetics. Part A Gripp, K. W., Morse, L. A., Axelrad, M., Chatfield, K. C., Chidekel, A., Dobyns, W., Doyle, D., Kerr, B., Lin, A. E., Schwartz, D. D., Sibbles, B. J., Siegel, D., Shankar, S. P., Stevenson, D. A., Thacker, M. M., Weaver, K. N., White, S. M., Rauen, K. A. 2019

Abstract

Costello syndrome (CS) is a RASopathy caused by activating germline mutations in HRAS. Due to ubiquitous HRAS gene expression, CS affects multiple organ systems and individuals are predisposed to cancer. Individuals with CS may have distinctive craniofacial features, cardiac anomalies, growth and developmental delays, as well as dermatological, orthopedic, ocular, and neurological issues; however, considerable overlap with other RASopathies exists. Medical evaluation requires an understanding of the multifaceted phenotype. Subspecialists may have limited experience in caring for these individuals because of the rarity of CS. Furthermore, the phenotypic presentation may vary with the underlying genotype. These guidelines were developed by an interdisciplinary team of experts in order to encourage timely health care practices and provide medical management guidelines for the primary and specialty care provider, as well as for the families and affected individuals across their lifespan. These guidelines are based on expert opinion and do not represent evidence-based guidelines due to the lack of data for this rare condition.

C. 2016; 170 (8): 1959-1966

Abstract

The RASopathies are a group of disorders due to variations of genes associated with the Ras/MAPK pathway. Some of the RASopathies include neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), Noonan syndrome, Noonan syndrome with multiple lentigines, cardiofaciocutaneous (CFC) syndrome, Costello syndrome, Legius syndrome, and capillary malformation-arteriovenous malformation (CM-AVM) syndrome. In combination, the RASopathies are a frequent group of genetic disorders. This report summarizes the proceedings of the 4th International Symposium on Genetic Disorders of the Ras/MAPK pathway and highlights gaps in the field. 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
