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.
