Spring is here!
Times flies and Louisville Lectures has had quite the year already. For the past few months we’ve been working hard to start and continue new adventures with Little Lectures, but we’d like to take a moment to give special attention to our first Internal Medicine Lectures. Spring is here and we’d like to highlight some of our favorite Allergy & Immunology Lectures. Check them out!

Our Allergy & Immunology Lectures
Dr. Gerry Lee highlights important differences between allergic and non-allergic rhinosinusitis and emphasizes how to evaluate and treat the presentation of rhinitis. He discusses when to refer patients with rhinitis to allergists and how to recognize relationships between upper and lower airway diseases.
Dr. Cindy Owen gives an overview of cutaneous drug reactions and an approach to diagnosis and treatment in this image-driven lecture. She spends time on urticaria, fixed drug eruption, serum-sickness reaction, hypersensitivity vasculitis, morbilliform rash, drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms, erythema multiforme, toxic epidermal necrolysis and less familiar drug reactions (acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis, symmetric drug related intertriginous and flexural exanthem).
Dr. Gerald Lee discusses common primary immunodeficiencies using a case-based approach. He introduces the topic of immunodeficiencies by creating broad categories of clinical presentation to assist with pattern recognition. He spends more time on Selective IgA Deficiency and then covers Common Variable Immunodeficiency in depth.
