Description:
In an increasingly global community, the rapid adaptation of microorganisms has facilitated the return of old communicable diseases and the emergence of new ones. Tropical Dermatology, 2nd Edition, provides a practical, highly illustrated approach to the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of tropical skin diseases. In a concise and user-friendly format, it offers authoritative coverage of epidemiology, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, pathology, laboratory tests, management, and prevention for both common and rare conditions. Examines the full range of tropical skin diseases in an easy-to-reference format, with consistently organized, templated chapters. Structures clinical guidance by disease rather than by microbe or "bug." Covers the key issues for travelers, important considerations for people working in the tropics, and non-infectious conditions. Provides authoritative guidance for dermatologists, infectious disease specialists, and travel medicine physicians. Includes new chapters on Tungiasis, Ebola and Zika virus.
