With over 250 full colour illustrations the new 5th edition of the bestselling ABC of Dermatology covers the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions for the non-dermatologist. It sets out the main types of clinical change that occur in and on the skin, and relates this to specific skin conditions and underlying pathological changes. It then summarises the relevant pathological processes, diagnostic features and learning points. The types of treatment are clearly differentiated - between those suitable for the patient to obtain 'off the shelf', on prescription, and in specialist units. The ABC of Dermatology provides the core knowledge of diagnosis and therapy of common conditions and the general principles of skin condition management. Including new chapters on drug rashes, connective tissue disease, skin tumours, practical procedures, laser treatments and a practical guide to dressings and bandages, this highly illustrated ABC is the perfect learning partner for GPs, GP registrars, junior doctors, medical students and primary care nurses.
