Objective: Dermatological problems are common in intensive care patients. Critically ill patients show dysfunctions of their vital organs. Skin, like other organs, is affected by a range of disorders. Because of the characteristics of an intensive care unit (ICU), dermatological problems are overlooked in day-to-day clinical practice. The aim of this study was to analyze dermatological problems in our ICU.
