Not to be missed! Differential diagnoses of common dermatological problems in returning travellers


Neumayr, Andreas; Hatz, Christoph; Blum, Johannes (2013). Not to be missed! Differential diagnoses of common dermatological problems in returning travellers. Travel Medicine and Infectious Disease, 11(6):337-349.

Abstract

After systemic febrile illnesses and diarrhoea, dermatological disorders are the third most frequent health problem of returning travellers consulting travel clinics. While most travel-related dermatological problems are mild, self-limiting and rather harmless, the challenge is to pick up on dermatological clues to potentially severe or even life-threatening diseases. This article provides an overview of the most common and the 'not to be missed' dermatological diagnoses in international travellers.
