Dermatology

The skin is the largest organ in the body and plays many essential roles, including maintaining a protective barrier, providing immunity, and communicating with the outside world. At the Division of Dermatology at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, we understand how impactful a skin condition can be on our patients and their families.

Our pediatric dermatologists are fellowship-trained in the diagnosis and management of a wide range of skin conditions in infants, children, and adolescents. We pride ourselves in merging up-to-date science with compassion to provide excellent care.
