About this book

Introduction

A greater percentage of the population is now in the over-65 age group, with this trend expected to continue well into the 21st century. Consequently, geriatric dermatology is a specialty that is receiving particular attention, not only in terms of patient numbers but also the scope of treatment, with more treatment regimens becoming available to dermatologists.

Diagnosis of Aging Skin Diseases provides the clinician with an encyclopedia of geriatric dermatoses that can be used on rounds or in a reference environment. It provides a structured illustrated review of the various lesions encountered, which will make this an invaluable reference resource for all physicians dealing with older skin. It also places special emphasis on illnesses originating in other organ systems that are made manifest on the skin and often complicate the diagnostic and therapeutic picture.

The manifestations of dermatologic disease in the geriatric population are often subtly different to those in younger age groups. Using a practical and clinical approach, Dr Norman and his contributor panel of leading authorities in the field have compiled a vital reference for dermatology fellows and residents, geriatricians and related clinicians to identify dermatoses specific to the aging population.
