Skin lesions are often the first sign of endocrine disease. The ability to identify such lesions is thus of great importance for endocrinology specialists as well as dermatologists in the early diagnosis and treatment of endocrine disease.
Lavishly illustrated, this clinical guide describes the clinical and histological features of skin lesions observed in endocrine diseases. Written in the language of dermatologists in order to enable a simple association between the features observed and the endocrine etiology, and with its reader-friendly format, this book will support dermatologists and endocrinologists alike, both in finding the cause of the disease and in making the correct diagnosis.
Written for: Dermatologists, endocrinologists, and physicians working in the field of general medicine
