Abstract

It is estimated that around 15% of the population suffer from atopic dermatitis or eczematous disorders at some point in their lifetime, causing a significant percentage of visits to dermatologists, primary care physicians, and allergists. Despite much current research interest, the pathophysiology of these disorders and their optimum treatment remain uncertain. In Atopic Dermatitis & Eczematous Disorders, the authors discuss all clinical aspects and treatment of atopic dermatitis and other eczema variants, including: •Seborrheic dermatitis •Nummular eczema •Stasis dermatitis •Exfoliative erythroderma •HIV-related dermatoses •Ichthyosis vulgaris •Hand dermatitis •Immunodeficiency disorders The book also discusses complications such as secondary infection and ophthalmic disease, as well as legal aspects. It contains almost 300 high-quality color clinical images, making it an invaluable visual reference for dermatologists in practice and training, candidates for post-registration qualifications, primary care practitioners, medical students, and allergists.
