Scope of this template[edit]

My goal for this template was to provide all clinical (clinical as defined from a dermatologist or dermatopathologist perspective) nomenclature for describing skin lesions on a macroscopic and microscopic level. I have tried to be conservative in the number of terms I have selected, and a "purist" in choosing terms specific to the field of dermatology/dermatopathology, chosing only terminology for describing a skin lesion. Therefore, for example, terms like "diaphoresis" have been excluded because they do not define a specific skin lesion.

However, before I start using this template on pages, I wanted to have a healthy debate about what should and should not be included, and where to include things.

Thanks for all your help! Kilbad (talk) 18:03, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
