Skin diseases cause a substantial burden in terms of worldwide morbidity, yet epidemiological data are limited for several cutaneous conditions both at the population and clinical levels. Noncommunicable chronic skin diseases are increasing in prevalence worldwide and are associated with long-term morbidity, impairment, and mortality, thus requiring increased epidemiological surveillance and preventive measures. Skin cancer and aging-related skin disorders are on the rise, requiring increased epidemiological surveillance and interventions. The wide disease spectrum and the heterogeneous terminology and coding of most skin conditions require novel investigative approaches to epidemiological studies. Epidemiological factors influence current and future clinical practices of dermatology, and at the same time, novel preventive diagnostic and therapeutic concepts may alter the epidemiology and burden of skin diseases. This Special Issue, “Clinical Epidemiology of Skin Disease” is now open for submissions and is focused on the different epidemiological aspects of mucocutaneous conditions, including descriptive epidemiology, clinical burden, outcome measures, quality of life, cost and utility analysis, care models, preventive, and diagnostic and therapeutic measures across the dermatological disease spectrum.
