Skin diseases are quite common among children, with treatment that requires close attention, unlike adults. The Department of Pediatric Dermatology is operated as a division of Seoul National University Children's Hospital to professionally treat children's skin diseases.
At the Department of Pediatric Dermatology at Seoul National University Children's Hospital, we work with 5 prestigious professors, fellows, nurses, and residents to provide the best pediatric skin disease treatment in Korea. The Department of Pediatric Dermatology treats various pediatric skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis, acne, hair diseases, vitiligo, pigmentary diseases, hereditary diseases, hemangiomas, vascular malformations, and psoriasis. In the treatment of these diseases, various approaches such as surgery, laser surgery, as well as drug treatment, are applied. We are also striving to provide accurate diagnosis and the best treatment through cooperation with professional medical staff in various medical departments such as the Departments of Pediatrics, Pediatric Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, and Pediatric Surgery.
