It is a well known fact the magnitude of skin disorders has been rising in our country, India. Various data showing pattern of skin diseases in different countries and within the various regions of a country have been reported so far. The pattern of skin diseases varies with different countries and with different zones of a country due to socio -economic, racial and environmental factors. So far none of the study has been done in our country for the Mathura region, so we take the privilege to undertake a retrospective study based on our hospital data i.e K.D Medical College and hospital, Akbarpur Mathura. Our study will include all the newly diagnosed OPD cases attending the Dermatology and Venereology department in K.D Medical college and hospital from the period starting from 1st January 2018 to 31st December 2018. Diagnosis was based on the clinical expertise and laboratory investigations wherever it was required like KOH preparation, slit skin smear for AFB, Tzank smear, wood's lamp examination, VDRL test, skin biopsy, culture etc. Analysis of the clinical data records of the patients attended the OPD of dermatology and venereology department of our college during the period of 1st January 2018 to 31st December 2018 shows that Eczema (21.8%), fungal infections-dermatophytosis (19.37%) were among the most common skin diseases followed by scabies (17.51%) and pyodermas (7.62%). (0.73%) accounts for herpes progenitalis (STD). Genodermatoses formed the least number of cases in our study.
