Abstract

The authors reviewed 7,065 new outpatients who visited the dermatology clinic of Gyeongsang National University Hospital in Chinju from Jan. 1st, 1987 to Dee. 31st, 1990 to study the prevalence of common dermatoses in this region as compared to other regions in Korea, The results suggest that age, sex, monthly and yearly distribution patterns around Chinju are similar to those of other areas in Korea except for higher prevalences of vitiligo, psoriasis, alopecia, and for lower prevalences of scabies, insect bites, and syphilis.
