Somatization in dermatology patients is a challenge to diagnose and manage. Somatization presents as medically unexplained dermatologic symptoms, which are commonly encountered in dermatology and psychiatry practices. These cutaneous symptoms are often intriguing and do not fit into any particular known dermatologic condition. Sometimes, they may evoke negative feelings in the practicing dermatologist. The dermatologic somatic symptoms might be one way of communicating psychologic distress in a culturally acceptable method. These somatic symptoms may be masking another psychiatric disorder such as depression. They could also be an adaptive response to a difficult psychosocial situation and means of coping in a culturally meaningful way; therefore, the underlying conflicts need to be understood and managed in the sociocultural context of the symptoms. This chapter discusses the various unexplained physical symptoms in dermatology patients and the need for comprehensive evaluation.
