Description

Dermatoscopy has been heavily promoted to dermatologists as the front line in detecting skin cancer early and easily. However, this technology also has other uses in everyday dermatologic practice.

Dermatoscopy in Clinical Practice shows those already using the equipment how they can extend its use beyond pigmented lesions and exploit its full potential. Dermatoscopyand videodermatoscopy can be used for differential diagnosis, prognostic evaluation, and monitoring response to treatment of various disorders including inflammatory diseases, parasitoses, viral and fungal infections, nonpigmented skin lesions, hair abnormalities, and a large variety of other dermatologic conditions as well as cosmetology.

The book focuses on those conditions in which the techniques are most useful, describing the clinical and histopathological correlations associated with the procedure. The book includes color clinical images throughout, making it a handy guide for the dermatologist’s daily practice.

Reviews

"This is a fun book if you can call a book on dermoscopy fun. It covers dermatoscopic findings seen in parasitic infections, inflammatory dermatoses, alopecia disorders, and aging skin changes. There are many color photographs and descriptions of the magnified findings… This book takes dermoscopy skills to the next diagnostic level. It behooves all clinical dermatologists to master this information so as to improve their diagnostic acumen. We can no longer rely solely on our eyeballs." - Patricia Wong, MD (Private Practice), Doody Enterprises
