ABSTRACT

Dermatological diseases form an important chunk of disorders in any major hospital. Skin diseases are also influenced by various factors like environment, economy, literacy, racial and social customs. The pattern of skin diseases varies from one country to another country and in various regions within the same country. As the pattern of skin diseases varies in different parts of Bangladesh we decided to undertake a retrospective analysis of the skin disease pattern as observed in Gazipur. We included 3949 consecutive new patients coming to Dermatology and Venereology outpatient department over a period of one year at Kapasia health complex of Gazipur in Bangladesh. Skin diseases were diagnosed on the basis of classical clinical morphology with appropriate investigations. Out of 3949 patients, 2230 were males (56.47%) and 1719(43.53%) were females. Fungal disease was the most common disorder followed by scabies and bacterial infection. Infectious diseases i.e. fungal, bacterial, viral, scabies and STI constituted about 51.83% of the total patients and rests were noninfectious diseases (48.16%). Higher prevalence of infective disorders was seen compared to other studies. Diseases like bacterial, fungal, viral infection, scabies ,sexually transmitted infection( STI ), psycho sexual disorder(PSD),atopic dermatitis(AD), urticarial, hair diseases were seen significantly more commonly in males while acne, vitiligo, seborrheic dermatitis ,melasma ,lichen simplex chronicus(lsc) and eczema were seen significantly more common in females.
