Handbook of Vitiligo: Basic Science and Clinical Management

by Iltefat H. Hamzavi, Bassel H. Mahmoud, Prescilia N. Isedeh

“Handbook of Vitiligo: Basic Science and Clinical Management” has been written for dermatologists and other health care providers who treat and care for patients with this debilitating disease. While other publications describe vitiligo in depth, there are few resources available for the busy practitioner who needs a concise, practical guide to managing the condition in both adult and pediatric patients. “Handbook of Vitiligo: Basic Science and Clinical Management” is organized into 14 chapters. The basic science chapters underpin the book by offering practitioners a thorough understanding of the course of the disease, which will help them to explain the etiology of vitiligo to their patients. Later chapters provide guidance on how to optimize the various medical, phototherapeutic and surgical techniques available to physicians. This book recognizes that while many patients achieve successful outcomes from mainstream medicine, some may look for alternative options: accordingly we include coverage of Unani, Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine. This book provides lucid and comprehensive understanding on overview of vitiligo, immunopathogenesis, pathogenesis of vitiligo, melanocyte migration and repigmentation, cosmetic cover-up and tattoo, medical management of vitiligo, phototherapy treatment of vitiligo, surgical management of vitiligo, nutrition in vitiligo, complementary and alternative medicine in the treatment of vitiligo, childhood vitiligo, prognosis and quality of life, vitiligo support groups and the future of vitiligo treatment.
