Czech-Slovak Dermatology - About the journal

The journal publishes papers focusing on the current dermatovenerological issues and those of borderline fields. It focuses mainly on the practical aspects, but it also contains the latest results of research projects.

Clinical and therapeutic studies provide validation of the epidemiological, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures implemented in practice.
Presentations of case studies which are interesting from the diagnostic, differentially diagnostic or therapeutic point of view allow knowledge expansion in the field as well as more extensive and comprehensive papers focused on the latest information and using borderline fields.

The reader can verify the level of his knowledge in the quiz articles. Reviews of new books highlight interesting publications, which were published locally and abroad.
