About this book

Introduction

A comprehensive source of information on variations found in skin diseases throughout the world is offered here. By considering the overall problems of hereditary variables, climate fluctuations, and therapeutic differences, this volume provides an appraisal of the diverse factors that make up the composite picture of cutaneous medicine. Divided by continent and then further organized into countries or regions, each entry presents basic information on the disease indigenous to the area, including its definition and symptoms, etiology, clinical manifestations, histopathology, appropriate laboratory tests, differential diagnosis, management, prevention and references. Additional chapters discuss the influence of travel and migration as well as of variables such as climate. 38 full color plates superbly illustrate the many variations of major dermatologic diseases. As technology has made global travel far quicker and more commonplace, this book is a must for all dermatologists, infectious disease specialists, and for all family practitioners and general internists.
