9781848828612: Dermatology in Clinical 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.

From the Back Cover:

Skin problems are common complaints, as many as one in five of all primary care consultations are for dermatologic reasons, yet many clinicians find skin rashes difficult to diagnose. Dermatology in Clinical Practice has been created to assist all physicians, but particularly for primary care physicians, helping them in developing a methodical approach to manage patients with dermatologic symptoms.

The authors focus on the common skin problems, and discuss the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders in depth. The book also details topical, systemic and the physical modalities used in treating skin disease, while The urare skin diseases are only mentioned when required.

Cutaneous manifestations of systemic diseases are reviewed, enabling readers to correlate common medical and dermatologic findings. The primary care physician often refers cases to dermatology clinics for more complex dermatologic procedures, such as phototherapy, cryosurgery, and laser surgery. These procedures and a review of the diagnostic process leading up to their use are included in a carefully structured appendix.

This book is a vital practical reference for primary care, family medicine, and emergency medicine physicians, in addition to nursing staff and other support staff involved in the management of patients presenting with dermatologic conditions.

Review:

From the reviews:

“This is a dermatology textbook for general practitioners who need to be able to diagnose common skin disorders ... . The authors appear to have put a good deal of thought into the layout and organization of the book in order to provide enough detail to be complete ... enough to fit into a small, easy to carry book. ... It is easily accessible, well written, succinct, and would be a useful addition to the library of any general practitioner.” (Kathleen E. Kramer, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2010)
