Deepa J. | Prathima S. [2]

Abstract: Introduction: Skin is the largest organ of the body. And is also the most exposed part to harmful UV rays of sun giving rise to various neoplastic and non - neoplastic conditions. The spectrum varies according to geographic distribution, age, gender and coexisting disorder. Aim: To determine the histopathological spectrum of skin lesions at our tertiary care center and to evaluate their frequency, age and sex distribution. Methods and materials: A retrospective study was done in the Department Of Pathology, Vydehi Medical College and Hospital, Bangalore, India. All skin biopsies received in one year between January2022 to December 2022 were included. Results: Among 227 skin biopsies examined, inflammatory lesions were the most common 149 cases (65%) followed by infectious diseases 47cases (20.7%) in which bacterial 29 cases (57%) were most common and least being neoplastic category with 9.2% of malignant tumors and 4 % of benign tumors. Most of the skin lesions found were in age group between 20 - 30 years with male preponderance (M: F 1.76: 1). Papulosquamous lesions 60 cases (26%) were the most common lesions overall. Conclusions: Papulosquamous lesions are the predominating non - neoplastic and overall skin lesions, which was similar to the other studies done. Many skin diseases present with similar clinical lesions. Hence, skin biopsy and Histopathological examination becomes inevitable in various skin disorders to confirm diagnosis and initiate treatment.
