Geriatric dermatology review: Major changes in skin function in older patients and their contribution to common clinical challenges. Journal of the American Medical Directors Association Chang, A. L., Wong, J. W., Endo, J. O., Norman, R. A. 2013; 14 (10): 724–30


There is a paucity of data to guide evidence-based treatment decisions in managing older dermatologic patients, in part because of the frequent exclusion of older adults from clinical trials. Hence, we provide a comprehensive review of important conditions in geriatric dermatology, or "dermatogeriatrics." It is our hope the field of "dermatogeriatrics" will become more evidence-based and recognized as a field in its own right so that we can better meet the needs of our growing numbers of older patients, now and in the future.
