Dermatoscopy is performed in dermatology practice as a non-invasive technique for the differential diagnosis of pigmented skin lesions. This procedure can also be used for prognostic evaluation and monitoring response to treatment for several other dermatologic conditions. Documenting these extended clinical applications, this second edition features new material on fungal infections, parasitic infections, non-pigmented skin disorders, and hair shaft disorders. The book includes color illustration throughout, making it a handy guide for the dermatologist's daily practice.
Dermatoscopy has been heavily promoted to dermatologists as the front line in detecting skin cancer early and easily. However, this technology also has other uses in everyday dermatologic practice. Dermatoscopy in Clinical Practice shows those already using the equipment how they can extend its use beyond pigmented lesions and exploit its full potential. Dermatoscopy and videodermatoscopy can be used for differential diagnosis, prognostic evaluation, and monitoring response to treatment of various disorders including inflammatory diseases, parasitoses, viral and fungal infections, nonpigmented skin lesions, hair abnormalities, and a large variety of other dermatologic conditions as well as cosmetology. The book focuses on those conditions in which the techniques are most useful, describing the clinical and histopathological correlations associated with the procedure. The book includes color clinical images throughout, making it a handy guide for the dermatologist’s daily practice.
Books on dermatology are either focused for medical s- dents or for students of dermatology. A general practitioner sees a lot of skin patients; about 17% of their patients are related to skin disease. We therefore decided to write a book that should meet the needs of a general practitioner. To make the book helpful for the primary care physician, we have focused more on common skin problems and have discussed the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders in depth to help the general practitioner in diagnosing and treating them. The chapter on the management of skin d- eases also gives the details of topical, systemic, and the phy- cal modalities used in treating skin disease. Uncommon skin diseases are only mentioned where required. The chapter on cutaneous manifestations of systemic diseases will help the general practitioner to correlate the cutaneous signs of the common medical problems seen by them. Emphasis is laid on the bacterial, fungal, and parasitic disorders that are pre- lent in tropical countries. We have included the common d- eases of other continents, as the general practitioner especially of developed countries has patients from all over the world. Congenital and hereditary disorders are discussed with the corresponding chapters, which makes it easier for the reader to remember. A number of practical points are included with each subject, and history of dermatology is included where appropriate to make the subject interesting to read.
This book represents a simple, practical resource for all healthcare professionals working with dermatological patients with psychological aspects to their disease. The emphasis is on effective guidance rather than exhaustive case reviews, providing readers with a manual on the appropriate way to approach management of the patient in each case. Comprehensive in coverage, but concise in its delivery of information, Psychodermatology in Clinical Practice presents an idealized approach to management of psychodermatology patients within a global perspective, and provides practical tools to aid assessment of patients and in the decision-making process. It is suitable for dermatologists, psychiatrists and psychologists, dermatology nursing staff, primary care physicians and pediatricians.
This practical atlas describes the use of dermoscopy in the clinic, a technique that is increasingly used by the clinical dermatologist. It revolves around the use of clinical cases, simulating what happens in the clinic when the dermatologist is presented with a patient who has pigmented lesions. Dermatologists perform diagnoses based on what they see on the skin and with these images recognize different diseases. This whole spectrum of forms and shapes is reflected in colour. Dermoscopy opens a new and very wide field of structures and colors that can not be seen with the naked eye and, with appropriate training and the use of this book, improves our clinical diagnosis. Comprehensive Atlas of Dermatoscopy Cases teaches the technique through specially selected clinical cases that cover the entire field of dermoscopy, providing the reader a thorough understanding of the techniques and methodologies associated with diagnosis using dermatoscopy. It is of great use to the trainee dermatologist and any practicing dermatologist seeking to expand their skills with this important diagnostic tool.
This book is a comprehensive but compact guide to the latest technical and technological developments in the growing field of non invasive diagnosis in clinical dermatology. Information is provided on the practical and technical characteristics of a wide range of equipment and methods for in vivo measurements that aid in the investigation of skin function, the evaluation of topically applied products and the monitoring of skin disease. Individual sections are devoted to imaging techniques, skin analysis, superficial skin analysis, skin mechanics, water and stratum corneum hydration and erythema and blood flow. All of the authors are experts in the field, with detailed knowledge of the techniques they describe. Non Invasive Diagnostic Techniques in Clinical Dermatology will be of value for all dermatologists, whether they are engaged in delivering patient care or in research programs, for cosmetic scientists and for biologists involved in skin research and product assessment.

Clinical cases are a key component in modern medical education, assisting the trainee or recertifying clinician to work through unusual cases using best practice techniques. Integrative Dermatology is an important discipline in this regard since it is a highly visual subject requiring the reader to describe often very subtle differences in the presentation of patients and define accurately the diagnostic and management criteria to base their clinical decision-making on. In 1992 the National Institutes of Health established the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (now also called Integrative Medicine), which has led to increased evidence-based research. The objective of this book is to provide readers with an overview of traditional and complementary treatment options for the most common skin problems encountered in clinical practice.
