Dermosyphilopathy is a branch of medicine that studies venereal and skin diseases.
The skin constitutes the largest organ of the body and obviously the most visible. Although some dermatologic diseases affect only the skin, many others are the manifestation of a systemic disorder-that is, affecting several tissues or organs of the body.
Consequently, the training of the dermatologist must include very extensive studies such as rheumatology, immunology, neurology, infectiology and endocrinology.
Correlations between skin disorders with emotional aspects and/or from stressful conditions have also been established.
