Peter Devitt

This tutorial is designed to give a brief overview of some of the common and important skin and soft tissue problems that may require some form of surgical input into either the diagnosis or management - or both. These topics could be broadly categorised as:

  • tumours
  • infection
  • burns
  • wound healing
  • ulcer/sinus/fistula
More on the subject of burns can be found in the Burns and Trauma module. Please proceed with this case study to learn more about some of the other conditions listed above.
