Diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin are important aspects of family practice, and skin disorders are some of the most common problems encountered by the family physician. In the Virginia study (13), one of 18 medical visits concerned symptoms related to diseases of skin and cellular tissues. In practice, skin disorders are probably even more common than statistics indicate because patients often mention an incidental dermatitis during a routine examination or visit for another symptom.
