Comprehensive Approach to Infections in Dermatology is a guide to all types of skin infection, with detailed information on epidemiology, presentation, diagnosis and management.
The book is divided into eight sections; the first deals with ‘normal flora’ of the skin (microorganisms present under normal circumstances, without causing disease), whilst each subsequent chapter covers a specific type of dermatological infection including bacterial, fungal, viral, and mycobacterial infections, parasitic and protozoal diseases, infestations, bites and stings, and finally sexually transmitted infections.
The book provides a step-by-step approach to bedside diagnostic procedures, with key points highlighted throughout. 400 full colour clinical photographs illustrate the methods covered, and data, graphics and evidence-based therapeutic guidelines are presented in tables for ease of reference.
