The Portuguese Journal of Dermatology and Venereology (Port J Dermatol Venereol.) is the official organ of the Portuguese Society of Dermatology and Venereology, which has been published continuously since 1942, with 4 issues/year. It was formerly known as Revista da Sociedade Portuguesa de Dermatologia e Trabalhos da Sociedade Portuguesa de Dermatologia e Venereologia.

It is an open access double-blinded-peer-reviewed journal published in English that strives to publish high quality dermatological science with scientific merit and originality as the overriding criteria for publication.

It includes review and original articles on basic, clinical, and translational investigation, case reports of special interest, letters to the editor and images cases within the field of Dermatology and Venereology.

The main objective of the journal is to spread dermato-venereological news and, therefore, contribute to improve the understanding, management and treatment of skin disease and patient care among physicians and other healthcare workers and scientists.
