Abstract

The clinical features of the skin and mucosa as well as the dermatological pathologies of patients with Down syndrome are sometimes chronic and difficult to treat. Intense xerosis and perioral dermatitis result in a therapeutic challenge for the specialist. Multidisciplinary and proactive management involving the family and the patient who is able to understand and follow routines are fundamental to avoid common complications such as superinfection. New cosmetic formulations that include active agents capable of protecting and restoring barrier function are helpful in avoiding comorbidities and excessive drug use. The authors perform a review of the main pathologies and specific conditions of the skin as well as the measures for its correct management.

Resumen

Las características clínicas de la piel y mucosa así como las patologías dermatológicas de los pacientes con síndrome de Down son en ocasiones crónicas y de difícil manejo. La xerosis intensa y la dermatitis peribucal resultan en un reto terapéutico para el especialista. El manejo multidisciplinar y proactivo involucrando a la familia y al paciente que es capaz de entender y seguir rutinas resultan fundamentales para evitar complicaciones comunes como la sobreinfección. Las nuevas formulaciones cosméticas que incluyen activos capaces de proteger y restituir la función barrera son de ayuda para evitar las comorbilidades y el uso excesivo de fármacos. Los autores realizan una revisión de las principales patologías y condiciones específicas de la piel así como de las medidas para su correcto manejo.
