VCOM-Virginia Faculty Publishes Rare Case

VCOM’s own Hope Tobey, DO, FAAP, FACOP, was recently published on Consultant360 after seeing a rare case of a genetic rash in a baby girl. With few cases of this disease diagnosed in the United States each year, not many doctors will see this in their practices. “With any genetic disorder, the sooner you catch it, the sooner we can put in place treatments to help,” said Dr. Tobey. “Publishing something like this is a reminder that this exists and this is what it looks like, so other doctors might recognize it.”
