From the Back Cover
The last decade has seen a dramatic increase in our understanding of the pathogenesis of psoriasis with new treatment protocols constantly being developed. In particular, developments in research on molecular genetics, inflammatory mechanisms and immunology have changed our understanding of psoriasis.
Textbook of Psoriasis presents a concise and clinical account of the subject for the trainee and practising dermatologist. The text principally concentrates on the clinical presentation of psoriasis and on the management of the condition using the various pharmacological agents available. It also reviews the underlying science from the point of view of causation and pathology. Containing the contributions of a distinguished team of experts in the field, the book is divided into three sections that discuss the clinical morphology of the skin, its etiology and pathogenesis, and finally the current available treatments for this distressing disease.
Textbook of Psoriasis is an invaluable referece for both the trainee and practising dermatologist.
