Comprehensive Approach to Infections in Dermatology

by Archana Singal, Chander Grover

Infections constitute the bulk of dermatologic practice in most areas. In areas where they are not common, they tend to be “exotic”, and thus even more difficult to identify or diagnose. This book “Comprehensive Approach to Infections in Dermatology” represents a very substantial and useful contribution in the field of infections in dermatological medicine. The book exhaustively covers all important and relevant skin infections such as bacterial, mycobacterial (including tuberculosis and leprosy), fungal, viral, protozoal and parasitic infestations, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). For each of these, well-defined sections on epidemiology, clinical features, differential diagnosis and management approach have been included. Description of clinical presentation to the detail and exhaustive differential diagnoses ensure an in-depth comprehension of each infection. Details of diagnostic and/or therapeutic procedures in-vogue have been meticulously integrated. A step-by-step approach to bedside diagnostic procedures makes this book a quick reference guide. Preventive measures including vaccination have also been outlined wherever applicable. The book seeks to provide a critical, yet practical approach to treatment. Obsolete remedies have been omitted. Therapeutic management discusses the most effective and safest remedies that have been time-tested and also backed by the extant high-quality evidence. Latest therapeutic guidelines for specific infections have been dealt with in relevant chapters. The liberal use of tables, graphics, and other forms of illustrations make this book a reader-friendly, must-have manual, not only for a dermatologist but for pediatricians, physicians and general practitioners alike.
