Skin disease in post-flood Pakistan

In Pakistan, skin disease has developed into one of the top three medical conditions experienced by those affected by August's massive floods.

Dr. Aisha Sethi is a professor of dermatology at the University of Chicago Medical Center. Her interests in tropical dermatology, immigrant minority and refugee populations and global skin infectious diseases have led her to field work in Pakistan, Malawi and Tanzania.

Dr. Sethi spent a few weeks in Pakistan after the devastating floods. She tells us about what she saw and her work with albinos in Malawi.
