Abstract: The retrospective study of skin diseases in children less than 13 years old was performed at the referral Pediatric Dermatology Clinic, Siriraj Hospital, Thailand. It included 4,265 visits made by 2,361 patients. The prevalence and demographic data of all diagnoses were analysed. In children, eczematous dermatitis was the most common (41.2%), followed by skin infections (21.9%), pigmentary disorder (7.0%), hypersensitivity skin diseases (4.1%), and others. Atopic dermatitis was the most common type of eczema in children (6.0%). The entity of contact dermatitis, scabies, vitiligo, tinea capitis, alopecia areata, papular urticaria, impetigo and urticaria represented 4.9, 4.1, 4.1, 3.3, 2.4, 2.3, 2.3 and 2.2 per cent, respectively. These data may be useful in planning the dermatologic education and health care program for Thai children in the future.
