Clinical Pediatric Dermatology

by Jayakar Thomas, Parimalam Kumar

Dermatoses in children are amongst one of the most common skin conditions worldwide. Despite this fact, accurate information about these conditions is scarce. This book, Clinical Pediatric Dermatology (Second Edition), is designed as an academic project with the target readers as both postgraduate students and practicing dermatologist. This book consists of 13 chapters that mainly focus on structure and functions of skin, approach to history taking and clinical examination in children with dermatologic problems, basic relevant investigation, infections and infestation, dermatitis and eczema, diseases of hair, sebaceous and sweat glands, urticaria and vascular reactions, papulosquamous disorders, genetic disorders, bullous disorders, pigmentary disorders, nutritional disorders, and autoimmune blistering diseases. All chapters encompass glimpses of existing knowledge in the light of recent advances in the segment of fungal diseases and comorbidities. This book is a helpful tool—not only for the student who needs an expert source of basic knowledge in the different forms of pediatric skin problems, but also for the pressured practitioner who needs a clear, concise, and balanced distillation of the best information on which to base daily clinical decisions.
