A Full-Range of Dermatology Services for Children

Our board-certified pediatric dermatology experts care for children from infancy to 18-years-old. The team provides specialized diagnosis and treatment for the full spectrum of common and complex skin disorders from rashes, eczema and acne—to birth marks.

Comprehensive Care for Genetic Skin Disorders

Care may begin at birth for infants with genetic skin diseases, when our pediatric dermatologists are called upon for immediate inpatient consultation for infants born at both MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Often treatment begins before newborns leave the hospital—and may continue over the course of their childhood.

Our experts also work hand-in-hand with geneticists at the Genetic Skin Disease Clinic to ensure accurate diagnosis and treatment of rarer genetic skin disorders, including:

  • Neurofibromatosis
  • Epidermolysis bullosa
  • Ichthyosis
  • Tuberous sclerosis
  • Epidermal nevi
  • Port wine stains and other birth marks

A variety of treatment options are utilized including the latest laser treatments, which may be used for several pediatric skin conditions including vascular birthmarks such as port wine stains.

 

Inpatient Consultation, Outpatient Services

The team provides consultation to medical specialists when questions arise regarding skin disorders observed in children hospitalized at MedStar Georgetown Pediatrics at MedStar GUH.

Continuing dermatologic care for infants, children and teens with common and uncommon skin disorders is available on an outpatient basis at two locations: MedStar Georgetown University Hospital on Reservoir Rd. in D.C., and MedStar Georgetown Pediatrics at Tenleytown.

Pediatric dermatology services are provided by Dermatologist Cynthia DeKlotz, MD.
