Pigmentary Disorders: A Comprehensive Compendium

by Rashmi Sarkar, Koushik Lahiri, Manas Chatterjee

This book is comprehensive about the biology of pigmentation and all its disorders. The purpose of this book is to help consultant dermatologists, dermatologists in training, and family physicians to appreciate and evaluate skin color, diagnose its disorders and to offer the best therapies available worldwide. It emphasizes two particular disorders—vitiligo and melasma, opposite problems but of great concern especially for those with dark skin. The book is richly illustrated with photographs from the extensive library of clinical pictures available to the editors and contributors. An attempt has been made to elucidate common and uncommon pigmentary disorders by authors’ personal experience as well as scientific evidence throughout the chapters.
