This page is dedicated to covering the topic of how to best describe dermatological findings. This can apply to either a verbal or oral description (in a note/presentaion respectivley).
This topic is one that can get VERY confusing VERY quickly as there are so many descriptive words that can be used in discusing exactly what a dermatological finding looks like. It is for this reason that we will take a systematic approach that will simplify the process.

WHY DON’T YOU TAKE A PICTURE? IT WILL LAST LONGER!
