Phenotypes Updates

Recommended Posts

"A recent study in the British Journal of Dermatology makes a case for treating and managing rosacea based on the clinical presentation, or phenotype....The international ROSCO panel was able to reach a consensus on initial, combination, and maintenance therapy using a phenotype-based approach for treating skin features of rosacea. Ophthalmologists on the panel also agreed on an approach to managing ocular rosacea. Results suggest that physicians should select a combination of treatments for rosacea based on presenting features, overall disease activity, and the severity of the features."

"The National Rosacea Society (NRS) announced today (11/8/17) that a new standard classification and pathophysiology of rosacea has been published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology....While the original classification system designated the most common groupings of primary and secondary features as subtypes, the committee noted that because rosacea appears to encompass a consistent inflammatory continuum, it now seems appropriate to focus on the individual characteristics, called phenotypes, that may result from this disease process. Observing the respective phenotypes in clinical practice will also encourage consideration of the full range of potential signs and symptoms that may occur in any individual patient, and assessment of severity and the selection of treatment may be more precisely tailored to each individual....According to the new system, the presence of one of two phenotypes – persistent redness of the facial skin or, less commonly, phymatous changes where the facial skin thickens – is considered diagnostic of rosacea....The committee noted that, as with the original classification of rosacea, the updated standard system is considered provisional and may require modification as the causes and pathogenesis of rosacea become clearer, and its relevance and applicability are tested by investigators and clinicians."
