There are a significant number of dermatoses associated with renal abnormalities and disease, and dermatologists need to be keenly aware of their presence in order to avoid overlooking important skin conditions with potentially devastating renal complications. This review discusses important nephrocutaneous disease associations and recommendations for the appropriate urgency of referral to nephrology colleagues for diagnosis, surveillance, and early management of potential renal sequelae. Part II of this 2-part continuing medical education article addresses inflammatory and medication-related nephrocutaneous associations.
