Special Issue Information
Considering recent advances in the field, dermatovenerology has proven to be a specialty of clinical, investigative, and therapeutic interest. Medical history and clinical examination, followed by non-invasive imaging or blood tests or the exploration of skin structures and their pathological changes, allow pathologists to better understand, detect, and define diseases of the skin. Cutaneous signs and symptoms thus represent a window into the systemic state of the human body. Many diseases thought to be localized to the skin are now considered to be systemically involved in other areas. Each patient is unique, with their own comorbidities and anatomic or physiologic particularities. Cutaneous skin diseases vary in appearance, evolution, and prognosis as well as in their response to various treatments. The management of skin disease comorbidities requires interdisciplinary collaboration among medical and surgical specialties. Novel treatments are now available for various skin conditions, including surgical, cosmetic, and physiotherapeutic procedures. Drugs of both plant and chemical origin can produce systemic or adverse skin reactions. If classical therapy is ineffective or is not tolerated, off-the-label drugs or complementary and alternative medicine methods can be used as part of an integrative medicine treatment. The new perspectives offered by translational medicine and research on the microbiome, endosymbionts, inflammatory molecules, diagnostics, treatments, and observations of comorbidities, complications, and their management are improving the standard of skin care, placing it in the context of personalized medicine and care. This Special Issue of Life, entitled “Current Research on Dermatology: Pathology, Clinical Manifestation, Investigation and Therapy ”, will collect and present data on the latest developments in the field. We welcome reviews, research/original articles, case reports, and short review, clinical dermatology images (max: 175 words, 10 references, and 4 images). Articles should comprise roughly 3000 words and include more than 30 references. Review papers should be around 4000 words and include at least two figures or tables. Life has no restrictions on the maximum length of research manuscripts, provided that the text is concise and comprehensive. Papers may have two correspondent authors and two first authors. Submissions received before 24 June 2022 may receive a 20% discount.
