BACKGROUND: Understanding the connection between skin lesions and the pathology of internal organs and body systems that may have caused them is a prerequisite for successful cosmetic therapy.

AIM: The aim of this study was to analyze the influence of a patient's somatic pathology on the manifestation of skin abnormalities.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was conducted according to a "case-control" design and was accompanied by a retrospective study of outpatient records of patients with the disease (group 1) and patients without it (control group). It is aimed at revealing the connection between a patient's skin manifestations and somatic pathology, as well as the effectiveness of therapeutic measures for the correction of such a condition.

RESULTS: Patients with acne and rosacea have a statistically signi-ficantly higher incidence of gastrointestinal diseases (in particular, gastritis caused by Helicobacter), diabetes mellitus, vitamin and micronutrient deficiencies, which significantly affects the effectiveness of their treatment and quality of life. In such chronic dermatoses, disruption of intestinal microbiocenosis can be considered as a co-morbid condition. Hyperpigmentation of patients' skin was caused by hormonal dysfunction (hyperestrogenism) and was accompanied by vitamin D deficiency.

CONCLUSIONS: In cosmetology practice, therapy of dermatoses should be individualized and based on the analysis of the course of the disease, considering the diagnosed dysfunctions of certain organs or systems that cause skin pathological changes, as well as the preva-lence and severity of dermatosis, presence of comorbid background and mental disorders. A holistic approach in the therapy of dermatoses involving a dermatologist, a psychologist, a cosmetologist, and specialized clinicians will ensure their effective treatment.
