We describe a logical and systematic approach to unknown dermatologic disease entities that utilizes a simple algorithm which, when properly applied, expeditiously narrows the differential diagnosis and provides a key to standard reference books. We find this algorithm system to be superior to the common and often frustrating exercise of leafing through the dermatologic atlas in search of a picture that matches the presenting rash.
