Dermatology is a speciality area of medicine dealing with both the medical and surgical aspects of the skin, nails, hair and its associated diseases.
Clinical photography is the cornerstone of proper dermatological documentation whether in case reports, for monitoring patients or for clinical trials and research development. The most important factors to be considered for good clinical photography are clarity and consistency which are achieved via patient preparation, proper lighting and camera settings.
One of the best ways of teaching and presenting Dermatological conditions is by the using photographs. Visual representation of a skin disorder is not easily imagined. There are hundreds of skin disorders and are more easily recognised by using a photograph.
Skin disorders also vary from country to country as a result of various climates, foods and ethnicities.
