Although the infection rate of dermatologic procedures is extremely low, it is important to understand the serious complications that may result from one of these rare events. With the ever increasing number of dermatologic procedures performed, research continues to build regarding cutaneous infections. In order to properly treat a surgical site infection, the etiology and course of the infection must be known. The common microbes, types of infections, prophylaxis, and treatments involved in dermatologic surgery are reviewed.
