Skin is the first line of defense to underlying muscles, bones, ligaments and internal organs. Throughout a lifetime it experiences many insults and injuries and frequently becomes diseased. It can also reveal to the skillful clinician some of the earliest and best clues to serious internal illnesses. A dermatologist is concerned with the maintenance of healthy skin, hair and nails and, most importantly, the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting them, the oral cavity and genitals.
