The Dermatology unit at Paideia International Hospital

Paideia International Hospital provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art service for diagnosing and treating dermatological, inflammatory, autoimmune, oncological, allergological and infectious conditions with outpatient, inpatientday-hospital and day-surgery services.

Dermatological screening involves a specialist consultation with the dermatologist and mole mapping in the same session. A dermatological check-up is available for a complete assessment of skin health.

Great care is given todermato-oncology using non-invasive diagnostic methods, such asdigital  epiluminescence microscopy for the early diagnosis and treatment of melanoma and epithelial tumors of the skin.

We also have  a flagship Paediatric Dermatology service; a child’s skin is much more sensitive than adult skin and therefore more prone to rashes or dermatitis.

The main procedures used in the Dermatology unit

Digital epiluminescence microscopy for the prevention and early diagnosis of moles and skin melanomas: this is a non-invasive and painless examination consisting of a bioluminescent observation of suspected (atypical) moles using a microscope connected to a digital camera and a computer. This technique captures digital images of the many features that make up the inner structure of moles, not otherwise detectable to the naked eye.



With the use of advanced tools for early diagnosis, melanoma has been diagnosed more frequently in recent years: in Italy, there are an estimated 7,300 new cases among men and 6,700 among women. Paideia International Hospital has set up a team of specialists – dermatologists, plastic surgeons and oncologists – who work together with the most appropriate course of diagnosis and treatment to solve the problem, depending on the stages identified.



Acne is an inflammation of the pilosebaceous follicle for which the main symptom is the appearance of a spots. First, comedones (blackheads) form, then papules or pustules (pimples) and, in more severe cases, it is possible that they evolve into nodules or cysts. Acne lesions are localised on the face, neck, chest and back. Although not a serious disorder, acne, when it occurs in a severe form, can induce unattractive and permanent scarring.

Very often acne is connected to gynaecological disorders (polycystic ovary syndrome) and other hormonal disorders. This is why Paideia International Hospital has designed an ad hoc pathway involving multidisciplinary specialists – dermatologists, gynaecologists and dieticians – who work together to identify the most appropriate course of diagnosis and treatment for each individual patient.



Psoriasis is a chronic relapsing disorder, often not only localised on the skin but also involving the joints. This is why early diagnosis, supported by a team of dermatologists , rheumatologists and radiologists, is important in order to apply the correct treatment to the individual patient.


Autoimmune diseases

Connective tissue diseases are a group of diseases that affect the skin and other organs, whose diagnoses require the collaboration of dermatologists, internists, rheumatologists and immunologists. Paideia International Hospital has created a dedicated pathway: from clinical and instrumental diagnosis to treatment according to the patient’s needs.


Paediatric dermatology

Children’s skin is different from adult skin, which is why Paideia International Hospital has a dedicated team of specialists for children who can distinguish among the peculiar diversity of symptoms and conditions.

The purpose of the dermatological examination is to diagnose and treat skin conditions (dermatitis, eczema, urticaria, erythema, acne, psoriasis, vitiligo, adnexal disorders) or to monitor the possible development of a skin condition that has already been diagnosed, in order to ensure an early diagnosis and more targeted and comprehensive management of skin conditions at a developmental age.
