The pediatric dermatology service at Children's Hospital consists of both outpatient and inpatient consultations and ongoing care. We offer comprehensive evaluation and treatment of all types of skin diseases in children. We require a provider referral for all new patients.
The pediatric dermatology clinics also serve as training sites for our dermatology and pediatric residents, with direct faculty supervision at all times. The attending pediatric dermatologist evaluates and treats each child.
A wide variety of skin conditions are seen, including acne, atopic dermatitis (eczema), contact dermatitis, bacterial/viral/fungal/parasitic infections, ichthyosis, mastocytosis, birthmarks, psoriasis, inherited skin disorders, and toxic skin reactions from medications or infections. We can evaluate any skin condition in children and adolescents.
Diagnostic procedures such as microscopic evaluation of skin samples and skin biopsies are performed in the clinic. More advanced surgical procedures can be arranged with the Vanderbilt Dermatology Laser Clinic, Vanderbilt Plastic Surgery, Children's Hospital Pediatric Surgery, or other specialties.
