  Abstract: In this article, the authors review the skin conditions seen in a dermatology referral clinic for inmates in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice system at the University of Texas Medical Branch. A database search of dermatology visits over a 34-month period yielded 3,326 adult outpatient encounters for analysis. Psoriasis, actinic keratoses, and hair diseases were the most commonly encountered diagnoses. Dermatophytes were the most common infection, keloids the most common benign tumor, and pemphigus the most common autoimmune disease. Abstract published by arrangement with Sage Journals.
