Genital Dermatoses

by Jayakar Thomas, Parimalam Kumar, Sindhu Ragavi Balaji, Dinesh Kumar Devaraj

Genital dermatoses is an elusive, complex, and difficult group of diseases to diagnose and treat. Conventional treatments, such as antibiotics, steroids, and antihistamines have proven to be useful for treating a handful of genital dermatoses; they are usually not always effective. This book on genital dermatoses is one that caters to all levels of medical persons, undergraduate and postgraduate medical students, practicing physicians and consultants in general, and to all dermatologists in particular. It has been written in a user-friendly style with several color images that are not easy to acquire in Indian patients. In this book, a wide variety of diagnostic tests and treatments are described, all of which have effectively helped many patients live long, productive lives. We have shared the goal to formulate protocols that treat the underlying cause of disease, rather than just its symptoms. This title offers a thoroughly updated presentation of the classic pathophysiology, basics of clinical presentation, and the details of the cutting-edge methods and tools that are now available for the assessment of symptoms and the effective management of genital dermatoses. The text is supported by to-the-point photographs, radiographs, illustrations and patient-care algorithms and tables.
