MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM:

Disease of  the skin  and musculoskeletal  system occur commonly  in  early age group. There are  not many  statistics  to prove the exact frequency of the skin disorder in  this country till  today. Nearly one-third of the paediatric out-patient visits involve dermatological problems. In addition to the primary skin disorders seen during childhood, skin  is often a marker of underlying systemic disease and many  hereditary syndromes. Therefore, obtaining a careful and detailed case  history is often essential to establish diagnosis of skin diseases. It  is also important to  identify the primary and secondary skin  lesions, their characteristics and exanline the hair,  nails and mucosal surfaces. So you  as a  nurse caring for these patients need to develop accurate skills to.assit in  appropriate intervention and  to plan related nursing  care.  In this  unit, we shall discuss  about  various skin  infections like bacterial, fungal,  parasitc,  viral and eczema and  ah  other common  skin disorders in  children. We  shall also focus on various disorders of musculoskeletal system. Let  us begin with skin  disorders.
