To prepare:

? Review the Skin Conditions document provided in this week’s Learning Resources, and select two conditions to closely examine for this Discussion.

? Consider the abnormal physical characteristics you observe in the graphics you selected. How would you describe the characteristics using clinical terminologies?

? Explore different conditions that could be the cause of the skin abnormalities in the graphics you selected.

? Consider which of the conditions is most likely to be the correct diagnosis, and why.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your Discussion post should be in the SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan) note format, rather than the traditional narrative style Discussion posting format. . Remember that not all comprehensive SOAP data are included in every patient case.

A description of the two graphics you selected (identify each graphic by number). Use clinical terminologies to explain the physical characteristics featured in each graphic. Formulate a differential diagnosis of three to five possible conditions for each. Determine which is most likely to be the correct diagnosis, and explain your reasoning.
