Abstract

A relationship has been found to exist both between mental health condition and the subjective assessment of life quality, and self-image. Thus, both patient's mental health status and his/her self image constitute major determinants of the quality of life that are worth to be monitored in dermatology patients. Their treatment procedure should include also psychological consulting or psychotherapy.
