(Vol.7 No.7 --- September 2002)

This month's medical section contains three useful papers on dermatology. They contain a lot of useful information that covers some commonly encountered dermatological problems. In this regard, I have to thank Dr. Chong Lai Yin, our Specialty Editor in Dermatology, who has invited three of his very good colleagues to write the articles for us.

As the summer holiday is coming to the end, parents have to prepare for another busy year when their children are going back to school. As you all know, most large scale medical conferences take part in the later part of the year when the temperature of Hong Kong is more "user friendly". I hope you would find the HKMD very useful when you are planning your CME schedule.
