Objective: Young adulthood can be considered the healthiest time of life and young adults are generally in good health. However many adult patients presented to hospitals for various problems including dermatologic complaints. Almost 70 % of adults have various foot problems. Although there are more detailed population based surveys where participitants self-reported problems of foot and toenail pathology, there is sparse data about the dermatological foot problems of the young adults. The aim of this study is to determine the dermatologic foot complaints of the young adults attending a dermatology outpatient clinic.
