Synopsis

Ethnic Dermatology Principles and Practice by Ophelia E. Dadzie, Andrew F. Alexis, Antoine Petit

Richly pigmented skin is the most common skin type internationally Historically, dermatology has focused on white skin. But rich pigmentation can lead to differences in presentation, disease course and outcome, and reaction to treatment. Some dermatologic conditions are seen predominantly or only in richly pigmented skin. Ethnic Dermatology: Principles and Practice provides a practical approach to the dermatology of non-white skin. Written from a global perspective to include Asian, African-Caribbean and North African skin types, it covers all the bases of dermatology including: * Grading scales in dermatologic disease * Pediatric dermatology * Dermatology and systemic disease * Drug eruptions * Hair and scalp disorders * Cosmetic dermatology With a central focus on practical action from an international cast of authors, Ethnic Dermatology: Principles and Practice gives you the clinical tools you need when skin colour matters.

Reviews

This book joins the library of references on skin of color. It is a good introductory textbook to learn about the special concerns and variation in clinical presentations of dermatoses in darker skinned individuals. (Doody s, 2 August 2013)
