The skin diseases observed in 41 children affected by type-1 diabetes and in 1,273 children unaffected by diabetes were compared to evaluate the dermatoses that are associated with type-1 diabetes. A high prevalence of vitiligo, psoriasis and herpes simplex infections was found in diabetics. These data are confirmed by statistical comparison.
