    During the past decades there has been increasing interest in skin diseases of infants, children, and adolescents. In this book some major topics of interest for the everyday practice of pediatric dermatology are presented by experts in this specialty. The concept of this volume arose from the First Congress of the European Society for Pediatric Dermatology which took place in October 1984 in Munster. Why pediatric dermatology? The need to treat the special problems of skin diseases of children is obvious. For example, topical application of corticosteroids for the treatment of eczema requires special precautions in children (Chap. pp. 117-123). With regard to the etiology and treatment of napkin dermatitis, opinions are often controversial among dermatologists and pediatricians (Chap. pp.l03-109). Lindane, a topical drug for the treatment of scabies in adults, may be harmful when applied in infants. Even in the field of cutaneous histopathology, there may be differences be tween skin diseases of children and adults. For example, the hallmark of a sebaceous nevus is hyperplasia of sebaceous glands, but these glands are immature and may be virtually absent before puberty.
