Description

This presentation will focus on identifying cutaneous manifestations of gastrointestinal disease with a focus on inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease.  Skin findings are often the first presenting skins of the underlying bowel disease, so early recognition can help to facilitate appropriate intervention.  We will also review management and treatment options for these conditions.
