We are seeking authors and reviewers

We are always happy to update pages when advised they may be out of date. Please tell us if you notice errors or omissions. Or perhaps you would like to translate a page into another language?

DermNet authors have included many volunteers: dermatologists, dermatology trainees and medical students from New Zealand and elsewhere. Expressions of interest should initially be made using the online contact form.

Clinical images

Do you have clinical images of dermatological disorders?

DermNet seeks clinical images of:

  • Rare disorders
  • Classic presentations
  • Skin of colour.
