ABSTRACT

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that is associated with multiple systemic comorbidities, with the strongest evidence linking rosacea to hypertension, dyslipidemia, inflammatory bowel disease, and anxiety and depression. To assess dermatologists' awareness of and screening practices for rosacea comorbidities, we developed a survey that was distributed to attendings and residents across four academic dermatology departments in Massachusetts. A total of 73 dermatologists with varying experience participated in the study. Findings demonstrated significant knowledge and practice gaps among academic dermatologists in managing systemic comorbidities in rosacea. In addition, dermatologists' awareness of rosacea comorbidities was negatively correlated with number of years out of residency training, highlighting the need to address this knowledge gap through increased continuing medical education. Importantly, we observed a low screening frequency despite a high awareness of the association between rosacea and ocular comorbidities, suggesting that additional financial, institutional, or practice barriers likely contribute to the low screening rate.
