ROSCO Panel Recommends New Approach on Rosacea Diagnosis by Phenotype

4 posts in this topic

The RRDi endorses the phenotype based treatment for rosacea

“Given the overlap of rosacea features across subtypes and the fact that no single treatment completely addresses all rosacea features, the current approach of diagnosing and treating rosacea by subtype may hinder individualised patient management. A new approach is needed to bring us closer to helping each and every rosacea patient receive the right treatment according to their signs and symptoms.” Jerry Tan, MD 

“While the rosacea management landscape has advanced, the current subtype-based view of the disease can hinder progress by limiting the way we consider treatment options. These new ROSCO recommendations should help to make a positive impact on future treatment development and ultimately help improve the lives of people with rosacea through a symptom-led approach.” Esther J. van Zuuren, MD
