Introduction: Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is a syndrome characterized by excessive anxiety caused by a non-existent or minimal physical defect. Despite that the disease affects up to 2% of general population, the awareness of this problem seems not widespread. The knowledge of psychodermatology among cosmetology students has not been studied until now.
Keywords: body dysmorphic disorder, mental disorders, behavioral disorders, students.
