Abstract

As dermatological advances become more technical, there are features of skin behavior which drift from view. They are less obvious through being mundane and less intriguing because of their intractability to a laboratory approach. They lie concealed behind unconscious clinical skills and are hampered by a restrictive concept of diseases as natural entities. The lecture text given here deals with chosen aspects of this theme.
