Book Description

There is significant increase in cross migration of women from various ethnicities, cultures, and with varying skin colour. With publications focused mainly on Fitz Skin types 1 to 4, accurate vulvar disease diagnosis in coloured skin may be compromised, resulting in suboptimal therapeutic outcomes, as the skin colour disguises much of the erythema seen in Caucasian population, the dermatoses look quite different in patients with skin of colour. This book is focused on female genital dermatoses and fills in those gaps for healthcare workers dealing with coloured skin types.

Key features-

  • Provides inclusive and consolidated contents on disorders of female genital skin and mucosa.
  • Features high quality illustrations and impressive treatment algorithms, making it a ready reckoner for dermatologists, gynaecologists, and general physicians.
  • Facilitates diagnosis and further management of vulvar disease in the skin of colour, thus optimizing patient care.
