Title Dermatologic disease: Twenty-two year experience at the USAF aeromedical consultation service and review of other military and civilian experiences
Bibliographic information Mar. 2000, Vol.71, No.3, p.230-237. 34 ref.
Abstract The Aeromedical Consultation Service (ACS) is a U.S. Air Force tertiary referral service which evaluates aviators with complex medical problems and makes recommendations for their aeromedical disposition. This study reports the experience with dermatologic disease among aviators referred to the ACS over a 22-year period from 1975-1997. Fungal diseases were seen most frequently (14.5%). Five aviators were permanently disqualified from flying duties due to chronic urticaria. A review of other military and civilian experiences with dermatologic disease is also presented.
