The main differences between dark and white skin are: more and larger singly distributed melanosomes in the keratinocytes and corneocytes and m ore sweat and sebaceous glands in dark skin. Cutaneous diseases which afflict white skin also occur in dark skin, however some of these diseases may occur more commonly in dark skin people or present in a different manner. Due to immigration in the last years dark people are increasing in number in Italy, and dermatologists should be aware of these variations in presentation to properly diagnose and manage these diseases.
