In an increasingly global community, the rapid adaptation of microorganisms has facilitated the return of old communicable diseases and the emergence of new ones. Tropical Dermatology, 2nd Edition, provides a practical, highly illustrated approach to the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of tropical skin diseases. In a concise and user-friendly format, it offers authoritative coverage of epidemiology, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, pathology, laboratory tests, management, and prevention for both common and rare conditions.
- Examines the full range of tropical skin diseases in an easy-to-reference format, with consistently organized, templated chapters.
- Structures clinical guidance by disease rather than by microbe or "bug."
- Covers the key issues for travelers, important considerations for people working in the tropics, and non-infectious conditions.
- Provides authoritative guidance for dermatologists, infectious disease specialists, and travel medicine physicians.
