Skin Inflammation & Psoriasis International Network (SPIN/formerly named PIN) has learned with great sadness of the death of Nelida Aurora Raimondo on 7 January 2020. Prof Raimondo was a distinguished colleague and past President of the Latin American Society of Psoriasis (SOLAPSO), Ex-Scientific Secretary of SOLAPSO, Member of the Pathological Advisory Board of Beiersdorf.

She was born on 29 November 1952 in Argentina, became a Medicine Doctor in 1977 and specialized in Dermatology in 1982. She was the Head of the Department of Dermatology at the Air Force Hospital in Buenos Aires and worked during 43 years in this Institution.
As a Professor of Dermatology at the Maimónides University in Buenos Aires and as an Adscript Professor of Dermatology University of Buenos Aires, she taught and trained generations of medical students and dermatologists.

She contributed to the advancement of psoriasis management in her area, in many ways. She launched together with her colleagues clinical practice guidelines on the systemic treatment of psoriasis.

She was also a member of several National and International Dermatological Societies (Argentine Society of Dermatology, Ibero Latin American Society of Dermatology, American Academy of Dermatology, International Society of Dermatology).

When she was president of Solapso, she joined SPIN as Scientific Committee member but also as National representative for Argentina, which helped a lot building an efficient collaboration between our international network and the Argentinian network. Thanks to her efforts, we have always been able to count on a remarkable participation of the Argentinian teams to our research projects, surveys and world congress. For the 2016 PIN Congress, Solapso group was in charge of the coordination of the scientific program and Pr. Raimondo played a great role in building this program.

SPIN team remembers her as a very human and kind person, who has always taken care of her professional relationships.

To her family, friends and co-workers, we offer our condolences.

On behalf of SPIN:
Prof Jo Lambert - President of the Scientific Committee
