Abstract

GONTIJO, Bernardo; BITTENCOURT, Flávia Vasques  and  LOURENCO, Lívia Flávia Sebe. Skin manifestations of illicit drug use. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2006, vol.81, n.4, pp.307-317. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962006000400002.

Illicit drug use and abuse is a major problem all over the world. The United Nations estimates that 5% of world population (aged 15-64 years) use illicit drugs at least once a year (annual prevalence) and half of them use drugs regularly, that is, at least once a month. Many adverse events of illicit drugs arise on the skin and therefore dermatologists should be aware of these changes.
