Phenotype Classification Uses Signs and Symptoms Better

Recommended Posts

“Practically, in our current phenotypic-led classification, it’s not important to be grouping into subtypes. It’s more important to be categorizing based on patients’ presentation in terms of signs and symptoms,” he says. “So, if they simply presented with centrofacial erythema that would be diagnostic of rosacea, but we wouldn’t go onto subtype. We would just leave them as is, as that predominant phenotype. Then, we would manage them based on that, with various treatment options that are indicated for background centrofacial erythema.”
