DermKnowledgeBASE is a knowledgebase for dermatology in RDFS using RAP - Rdf API for php (ResModel). The root of DermKnowledgeBASE is ONTODerm - the domain ontology for dermatology. The standard namespace for terms is same as ONTODerm.
The root classes are:

Dermatology is a medical speciality with its own unique set of terms. It
is important to understand these terms to comprehend dermatology. The
hierarchical organisation of terms and their relations is called an
ontology that is prepared by many domain experts. ONTODerm
is an ontology for dermatology. Ontology is prepared in a machine readable
form and can be used software systems to understand the semantics. Besides
implicit rules can be deduced from an ontology. For example, if you define
macule is a lesion and patch is a large macule, then a reasoner can
deduce that patch is a lesion too.
provides a general, flexible method to decompose any knowledge
into small pieces, called triples, with some rules about the
semantics (meaning) of those pieces.
