Conference paper


Dermatology and venerology exist as an independent medical discipline for over 150 years. As an organ speciality sharing common roots in operative tradition with surgical and internal medicine, it is today a highly developed field which recognizes, treats, encourages prevention and rehabilitates diseases of the cutaneous system. Similar to such organ disciplines as ophthalmology, oto-rhino-laryngology and gynecology, dermatology ascribes to various conservative and surgical procedures in treatment of patients. Treatment preferences in individual hospitals and clinics depend to a great extent on the background “school” of the directing physician. His training characterizes the attitude toward and the priority of alternative treatment procedures in the overall therapy concept and scientific orientation.
