Abstract

421 out of 494 patients hospitalized at Messina Psychiatic Hospital underwent dermatological examination. The majority of patients were affected by schizophrenia and mental retardation. Seborrheic dermatitis was more common among schizophrenic subjects than in the group of mentally retarded patients. Several cases of erythema ab igne and dermatitis artefacta were found in both groups. Cutaneous mycoses were the most frequent infective dermatoses. Senile dermatoses were observed more frequently in schizophrenic subjects. Among rare dermatoses there was a high prevalence of primary cutis verticis gyrata in male mentally retarded patients and of atypical cutis gyrata in female schizophrenic subjects.
