Pediatric dermatology in black patients.

Author information

  • 1Howard University, Washington, D.C.


An understanding of pediatric dermatology requires an insight into the differences between children and adults and a knowledge of the diseases that affect children exclusively. Therapy for the common dermatoses must be custom-tailored for children to prevent unnecessary and potentially harmful exposure to medications. Black children have similar requirements but are further distinguished by the manner in which their skin reacts and expresses these eruptions. I hope that this presentation has provided a greater insight into the fascinating field of dermatology as it applies to black children.
