|Title:||Prevalence of skin disorders among male schoolchildren in Amman, Jordan|
Abu Wandy, E.
|Abstract:||The prevalence of skin disorders and their relation to age and nationality in Amman, Jordan were determined. Eight schools were selected using a simple random technique and a total of 2788 male schoolchildren were examined. The overall prevalence of skin disorders was 19.23%, with leukonychia [36.66%], naevi [12.88%] and head lice [11.01%] being the most common. Head lice were found more frequently among the Jordanian [11.6%] than non-Jordanian [8.3%] schoolchildren. School health departments must be encouraged to control associated health problems|
