Abstract

Natural and manmade disasters cause a range of dermatologic manifestations, including secondary infections after a flood,1 irritation from blistering agents used in chemical warfare,2 or acute and chronic effects of cutaneous radiation syndrome.3 Recognizing and managing these disaster sequelae require diagnostic acumen, knowledge on reporting, and short- and long-term management strategies.
