Abstract

Viral infections contribute to a vast number of imported skin diseases from different nations worldwide. These conditions vary in their geographic distribution, clinical manifestation, and severity. Here, we have reviewed the most prominent viral infections with specific attention to their accompanying cutaneous manifestations and particular patient population. Clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of each viral illness have been discussed in detail. This edition first published 2013
