Viruses and the skin – Photofile (1.5 CPD hours)


Full CPD module


This module will:

  • Test your diagnostic skills by asking you to identify the type of viral infection from a short case history and a photo of the skin manifestation
  • Update you on the key diagnostic features of each condition
  • Outline treatment options

At the beginning of each case you will be asked to study a picture of the lesion plus a brief case history and then be asked to pick a diagnosis. You will then be updated on the management of the condition before moving on to the next.

At the end of the module your knowledge will be tested using a 10 question assessment which will be scored.
