This new edition of a bestselling text illustrates the changes in attitudes towards fungal nail infections: previously attracting little interest, with a reputation for stubborn resistance to treatment, they have now reached the stage where there has been enormous recent scientific and medical progress, bringing with it a real possibility for a successful outcome of therapy for a growing population of patients. With this process has come the realization that there is now a clear choice of treatment determined by rational medical assessment. This book has been written by clinicians for clinicians, to provide a guide to the steps needed to identify and effectively manage the patient with onychomycosis. It is the first title in a new Series in Dermatological Therapy launched in conjunction with the Journal of Dermatological Therapy.
