What is Image of the Month?

A photomicrograph is sent to all members of the Society once a month and diagnoses are invited. The correct diagnosis and the names of the first 3 persons who got it right are emailed a week later.

Non-members who are on the Society mailing list also receive the image but after a delay of 3 days.

The image is also emailed to ACAD-IADVL, the academic discussion group of our Sister Society, the Indian Association of Dermatologists, Venereologists and Leprologists.
