The first European Dermato-Epidemiology Network (EDEN) forum was held on 30-31 March 2017 in Madrid, Spain. Dermatoepidemiology describes the study of causes, prevention, health services research and evaluation of interventions of skin diseases. EDEN aims to promote high-quality research, share expertise and facilitate collaboration. These aims were achieved during the EDEN forum by including a preconference course on skin cancer epidemiology; having excellent world-leading guest speakers on causality, quality of care, pharmacoepidemiology and missing data analysis; and including delegates who presented and discussed innovative research findings...

Atopic dermatitis is common and in its severe form is devastating. This chronic inflammatory dermatosis is part of the atopic syndrome, which includes asthma, food allergies, and hay fever and is known to be associated with mental health disorders. In line with psoriasis, several recent observational studies using national survey and linkage data have suggested a link between atopic dermatitis and cardiovascular disease. The atopic dermatitis field can benefit from the past experiences in psoriasis research and should not follow the same path, but, rather, aim for a more comprehensive approach from the beginning...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the population using Australian dermatology outpatient services, in particular, Indigenous patients. This information is important to direct the strategic planning of dermatology services. METHODS: This study is a multicentre, retrospective audit of all patients attending public, outpatient dermatology clinics over 7 months across four Perth tertiary hospitals. The patient population (4873 patients) was profiled by age, gender, Indigenous status and rural/urban status...

The Psoralen plus Ultraviolet-A (PUVA) cohort study has been a tremendous success in determining how a novel treatment (i.e., PUVA) affects the long-term risk of keratinocyte carcinoma. The ability to follow patients from the initial multicenter clinical trial for more than three decades has been a remarkable achievement in dermatoepidemiology. In this issue, Stern and Huibregtse report results from the PUVA follow-up study and conclude that only patients with exceptionally severe psoriasis have an increased overall mortality risk and that there is no significant risk of cardiovascular mortality associated with psoriasis...

Dermatoepidemiology is an important emerging discipline in dermatology. This article reviews clinical and analytic epidemiology pertinent to reading, interpreting, and critically examining the literature, and presents an overview of evidence-based dermatology as a starting point for further study.

BACKGROUND: International Classification of Diseases, Version 9, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) coding information used for billing is readily available in computerized form. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this article is to determine the usefulness of ICD-9-CM codes in a descriptive dermatoepidemiological study of contact and other dermatitis. METHODS: Prospective recording of specific dermatologic diagnoses and the ICD-9-CM code assigned for each diagnosis was performed for all patient visits to the author's dermatology clinics for 6 months...

EPIDEMIOLOGY: Is the study of disease occurrence in human populations. As a science, epidemiology emphasizes descriptive and analytic observation, clinical trial, behavioral intervention, and the practical utility of diagnostic tests. "Epidemiology" is derived from the Greek epi (among), demos (people), and logos (doctrine). CLINICAL EPIDEMIOLOGY: Is the application of epidemiologic principles and methods to problems arising in clinical medicine, dermatology included...
