Our very own Dr. Casey Carlos, MD, PhD has recently been published in the peer reviewed medical journal JAMA Dermatology (published by the American Medical Association).
Most of us have heard of herpes simplex virus (HSV) the cause of the common cold sore. However, not many know it can be associated with erythema multiforme (EM). Although herpes virus infection is common, many physicians and patients may not be aware of this rare dermatologic complication. As Dr. Carlos explains in this article, a thorough examination is vital for any diagnosis in order to to accurately diagnose and treat patients with herpes-associated erythema multiforme (HAEM).
Dr. Carlos’ extensive research background and many years of dermatology training have contributed to her excellent patient care through her ability to pinpoint diagnoses and create detailed and personalized treatment regimens. We are delighted by her contributions not only to her patients at the practice, but also to the advancement of medical understanding.
