  • Description
  • Details

An indispensable and highly-accessible guide for all healthcare professionals faced with the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of children with skin diseases.

Subdivided into 37 comprehensive chapters written by experts in both dermatology and paediatrics, the book is organized according to presentation and body site rather than diagnosis, making it ideal for quick reference in the clinical setting as well as general study.

It contains over 300 full-color, high-quality photographs of skin conditions, as well as simple algorithms to aid diagnosis of common presentations, such as itchy red rashes, blistering disorders, bruising and hair and nail disorders. Although attention is focused on more common diseases, the features of many more rare conditions are listed under relevant clinical signs to aid diagnosis. Advice is given on when to refer to a dermatologist, while short descriptions of approved treatment modalities are given where appropriate.
