The latter include advances in the diagnosis and treatment of pemphigus, vitiligo (using both medical and surgical techniques and phototherapy), air-borne contact dermatitis, mycetoma, drug reactions, epidermolysis bullosa, ichthyosis-associated rickets and dermatopathology, among others. Faculty members have authored several popular undergraduate and postgraduate textbooks that are used in centres around the world.
