Inpatient dermatology is an emerging subspecialty focused on the care of skin diseases in hospitalized patients.1 Inpatient dermatologists provide expertise that the primary team and other consultative services lack. The cases encountered in hospital dermatology are often different from those seen in the traditional dermatology outpatient clinic and therefore require dermatologists with specific expertise.
