Abstract

INTRODUCTION

Psychodermatologic disorders are prominent in any dermatology practice – be it general, pediatric, or cosmetic dermatology. They can be extremely challenging to manage.

We provide a review of the commonly encountered psychodermatologic disorders to aid with proper diagnosis and management of this population. This review can also be used as a reference for board preparations.
