Who we are

The Dermatology division at the Montreal Children’s Hospital evaluates and manages a wide range of dermatological conditions. The most common conditions are atopic dermatitis (eczema), acne vulgaris, infantile hemangiomas (build-up of blood vessels), vitiligo (skin loses melanin), and psoriasis. The team also assesses a variety of birth marks and skin tumours or nevi, and accepts frequent referrals for skin infections (e.g. tinea, impetigo, molluscum, facial warts).

We have the expertise to diagnose and treat rarer dermatological conditions and rashes including disorders of the hair and nails, genetic skin conditions and rheumatological conditions such as morphea or lupus. As part of a tertiary-care academic centre, we offer cutting-edge treatments, such as propranolol for hemangiomas. We also perform minor surgical excisions under local anesthesia when indicated. 

Our team

Three dermatologists with pediatric expertise make up the Dermatology team.
