Dermatology in Clinical Practice

Dermatology is a discipline based around core diagnostic skills and innovative treatment and management protocols. Nevertheless, the clinical dermatologist is not the only physician that observes and treats conditions of the skin. Family medicine/primary care physicians, emergency room staff and other first-line medical personel all need to have a good grounding in recognizing and managing skin disease.
This book gives an insight into the common cutaneous disorders, discussing the treatment in detail, and giving a number of treatment options where required. More unusual diseases and syndromes are only mentioned where necessary. The first line physician’s needs are kept in mind while writing each chapter, e.g. the chapter on cutaneous signs of systemic disease is described in more detail in comparison to other short books on dermatology, because physicians in the front line of patient management regularly deal with a vast number of medical problems.
Primary care physicians tend to see patients from all over the globe and thus tropical skin diseases are described in detail. Infectious skin diseases can be perceived as an enigma in industrialized countries, especially for young doctors, and this book helps to demystify the diagnosis and management of these diseases.
The book is short, clear and easy to read, with an emphasis on practical relevant information. It has been designed expressly to assist primary care physicians, residents and fellows in dermatology, and emergency medicine and other first line medical personnel.
