There is no substantial body of literature describing dermatologic conditions with neuropsychiatric manifestations that could lead to misdiagnosis.

It is important that physicians maintain a balanced perspective when dealing with disorders that have no readily apparent etiology, especially if they occur in emotionally unstable patients.
