Abstract

MIOT, Hélio Amante  and  RAMOS, Paulo Müller. Dermatology and the Brazilian Portuguese language orthographic reform. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.1, pp. 176-178. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000100036.

The Brazilian Portuguese language orthographic reform has promoted changes in writing in less than 2% of its lexis. However, these changes have affected medical practice. The authors present in this article the main changes in the orthographic rules and gather a group of words that have had their spelling altered by this new language reform emphasizing the dermatological terms.

Keywords : Dermatology; Language; Vocabulary.
