Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Aim: Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most frequently diagnosed psychiatric disorder in children. Only one study was found in literature which examined cutaneous findings in ADHD so far. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the cutaneous findings of children and adolescents diagnosed with ADHD and to compare the incidence of these findings with healthy controls.
Material and Methods: Forty-six patients diagnosed with ADHD according to The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders fifth edition (DSM-V) criteria and 50 healthy controls with no ADHD symptoms that had similar characteristics to the patient group in terms of sociodemographic characteristics such as age and gender were included in the study. All the patients underwent whole body dermatological examination and pathological findings in the skin, hairy skin and nails in the patient and control group were recorded.
Results: The most common finding in the patient group was found as onychophagy and/or periungual skin biting with a rate of 76.1%. In addition, statistically significant difference was found between the two groups in terms of xerosis, prurigo and allergy history.
Conclusions: It is important to be careful in terms of cutaneous findings that may accompany ADHD in terms of both early treatment and also for preventing possible complications. In addition, determination of these findings will guide future studies in terms of identifying the common aetiology of ADHD and some cutaneous diseases.

Keywords: Attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder; cutaneous symptoms; onychophagy
