Clinical Investigations

In skin disease the clinical history and examination of the patient will usually assist the dermatologist or plastic surgeon in making the correct diagnosis. Diagnostic biopsy for histological examination is often the next stage in the management process. Particularly in inflammatory disorders, the skin may be involved in systemic disease and full clinical examination and investigation of the patient are required. Similarly, patients with congenital anomalies often have multiple abnormalities, emphasising the need for full clinical assessment.
