    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.

    Epidemiology. Anatomy of the Normal Nail. Clinical Patterns Correlated with Main Routes of Entry. Clinical Differential Diagnosis. Mycological Examination. Goals for the Treatment of Onychomycosis. Review of Current Antifungal Therapy. Preventive Measures.
