Prurigo nodularis (PN) causes intensely itchy, painful bumps leading to scratching, bleeding, and thickening of the nodules, with negative effects on sleep, mental health, activities of daily living, social interaction, and quality of life. There are no approved treatments for PN, but several agents in late-stage clinical trials offer hope to patients with this burdensome disease. At a recent live PeerView MasterClass & Practicum, a panel of PN experts offered evidence-based, practical guidance on current diagnostic and treatment strategies and the latest clinical data regarding novel therapies. The discussion was enhanced by a 3D animation depicting PN pathophysiology and patient videos providing perspectives on the burdens of disease and treatment experience. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Recognize how the signs and symptoms of prurigo nodularis (PN) impact patient quality of life; Explain how type 2 inflammation may play a role in the pathophysiology of PN; Describe current and emerging treatment options for PN in the context of mechanism of action, efficacy, and safety; and Develop individualized treatment plans for PN using currently available therapies and appropriately incorporating novel agents as they become available.
