to Skin Lesions (1 of 6)
Examination of the skin should enable the clinician
to determine the nature and distribution of any skin lesions.
The ability to identify skin lesions of different types
is a fundamental aspect in the assessment of the case.
The student must become familiar with the definitions,
appearance, probable pathogenesis and clinical significance of the
different skin lesions; this is one of the most vital learning objectives
in the dermatology course.
