Atopic dermatitis, nummular dermatitis, dyshidrosis, and melasma seem to be more common in Asians, whereas psoriasis and skin cancer are less common. In addition, there are less common skin conditions that are usually seen in Asians, including Mongolian spot, nevus of Ota, nevus of Ito, Kawasaki disease, primary cutaneous amyloidosis, Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease, and LCAI. Awareness of these less common cutaneous disorders can be helpful, especially for clinicians who work in areas with a large Asian population.
