Description of Other Expertise

Dr. Mauldin is a veterinary dermatopathologist with expertise in both the pathologic basis of skin disease and clinical dermatology. Her research interests are focused on the recognition, pathogenesis and treatment of skin disorders in companion animals. Dr. Mauldin, in collaboration with Dr. Margret Casal from the Medical Genetics section, is investigating the pathogenesis of several hereditary canine skin diseases to increase understanding of the disorders, with the goal of ultimately developing a screening test to identify carrier animals. These include cutaneous exfoliative lupus erythematosus of the German short-haired pointer, Ehlers Danlos disease and nonepidermolytic ichthyosis (fish-scale disease) affecting the Golden retriever and American bulldog. Furthermore, extensive collaborative investigations are underway into the morphologic manifestations of canine X-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia and response to interventional treatment as this disorder in dogs is identical to that seen in humans.
