Psychiatric evaluation of the dermatology patient.

Over one third of dermatologic disorders have significant psychiatric comorbidity. The impact of the skin disorder on quality of life, the role of psychosocial stressors, and use of substances should be assessed. Major depressive disorder is the most frequently encountered psychiatric disorder in dermatology and is often associated with suicide risk. Other psychiatric syndromes comorbid with dermatologic disorders include obsessive-compulsive disorder, social phobia, posttraumatic stress disorder associated with dissociation and conversion symptoms, body image pathologies, delusional disorder, and a wide range of personality disorders. This article reviews psychiatric guidelines that may be used to assess psychopathology in the dermatology patient.
