Dermatology has been present in NUH since 1985. The Division of Dermatology was officially established in 2015. We endeavour to provide holistic and patient-centred care.
Head of Division
The Division of Dermatology manages all dermatology inpatients and referrals. We run daily outpatient clinics and provide specialised investigations and treatments in all aspects of dermatological problems.
General Medical Dermatology
Medical dermatological cases seen here range from common to rare, and cover patients of all age groups.
We evaluate and manage a full range of skin lumps, bumps and discolorations such as epidermal cysts, lipomas, neurofibromas, warts, skin tags, keloids, moles, seborrhoeic keratoses, skin cancers, epidermal naevi, vitiligo, melasma, naevus of Ota, café au lait macules, tattoos, drug-induced pigmentation, etc.
The variety of surgical procedures performed by our clinicians include skin biopsies, electrosurgery, cryosurgery, intralesional steroid injections, carbon dioxide laser surgery and treatment of hyperhidrosis (sweaty palms, soles, armpits) with botulinum toxin injections. Vascular lesions including vascular malformations or tumours may be treated with a vascular laser. Chemical peels and laser-assisted pigment removal may be performed for appropriate conditions.
Mohs micrographic surgery is a service which affords precise care for management of various types of skin cancers.
Skin Cancer Screening and Surveillance
The objectives are:
All individuals with more than 10 moles, moles on inconspicuous sites, family history of malignant melanoma, giant congenital melanocytic naevus (>20cm), history of primary skin cancer or organ transplants are eligible for this programme.
Paediatric patients with all manner of skin
conditions, ranging from common to complex, are managed by the Division of
Dermatology. Unique strengths include the diagnosis and management of
congenital genetic blistering diseases, hair and nail diseases and vascular
malformations or tumours.
Challenging autoimmune blistering and collagen vascular diseases such as bullous pemphigoid, pemphigus vulgaris or foliaceus, cutaneous lupus erythematosus, vasculitis of the skin and dermatomyositis are managed holistically by our specialists, often with multidisciplinary input.
Multidisciplinary Vascular Anomalies Workgroup (MVAW)
Vascular anomalies are abnormalities or disorders of blood vessels or lymphatic vessels in various parts of the body. Vascular anomalies are classified as either a vascular tumour or vascular malformation.

Specialised Nurse-led Services
nurses run weekly wart clinics to treat viral warts by using a combination
treatment of paring and cryotherapy. Other specialized nursing services include
complex wound care with 2-layer compression bandaging system for patients with
venous insufficiency, wet wrap dressing education and demonstration, treatment
for alopecia areata, and biologics injection. Our nurses also provide
post-operation wound care counselling and removal of sutures.

full body treatment as well as targeted localized phototherapy treatments. Conditions
such as atopic dermatitis/eczema, psoriasis and vitiligo are treated, in
addition to rarer malignant skin conditions.
Our clinicians attend to inpatient referrals from
all disciplines. Patients seen in the Dermatology Clinic with more complex and
serious skin disorders may also be admitted for more intensive workup, nursing
care and coordinated multidisciplinary management.

A) Post-graduate Education
B) Undergraduate Education
Together with the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, the Division of Dermatology is actively involved in undergraduate medical training. We facilitate rotations for local medical students in different years of their undergraduate training. We also offer elective postings for both local and overseas students seeking more comprehensive exposure to Dermatology. Projects are organised for students who would like to be involved in research during their undergraduate years. Students are appointed a dermatologist as their supervisor who will assess them throughout the attachment.
Students, residents and trainees learn during clinic attachments, inpatient ward rounds and procedure sessions. Residents and trainees are always supervised by a consultant who will also conduct case discussions.
We also welcome clinical observers and clinical fellows to do attachments with us. For more information, please contact Dr Nisha Suyien Chandran via Miss Wong Lay Yam Lena at email@example.com.
Our division is committed to high quality and clinically-relevant research to advance dermatological knowledge, impact clinical services and distinguish NUH as a reputable centre for skin diseases. Multiple studies are on-going.
