AB  - Geriatric dermatology in India is gaining steady momentum, because the aging
      population is dramatically increasing. India crossed the United Nations
      definition of an aging country when the population of persons aged older than 60 
      years exceeded 7%. The dermatologic issues of this aging population are strongly 
      influenced by many social, economic, and cultural factors. Pigmentary disorders
      are the prime example of cultural factors affecting dermatoses and their
      treatment. Photoaging differs from what one sees in Western populations due to
      the inherently dark skin of Indians. Cosmetic dermatology is becoming very
      popular in the middle and upper classes, and therefore, the aging face has
      suddenly become an attraction for cosmetic dermatologists. Cutaneous cancers,
      however, are unusual in the Indian population, especially melanomas, but many are
      missed.
