In this new color handbook, the authors deal systematically with
those skin conditions that are particular to or more common in the
elderly covering testing, diagnosis and treatment options. Given
ageing populations the need for such a book is urgent.
More and more elderly patients will seek care for a variety of skin
conditions, ranging from eczema and psoriasis to benign lesions and
skin cancers. For environmental and physiological reasons, all such
conditions become more prevalent in the elderly and the effects of
treatment more problematic.
Following an initial chapter on how skin changes with age, the
authors discuss in turn inflammatory, neoplastic, infectious and
metabolic/nutritional diseases of the skin, plus skin signs of
systemic disease in old age.
Skin Diseases of the Elderly is written in a concise structured
style and illustrated by a wealth of top quality color photos. it
is intended to help dermatologists in practice and training,
geriatricians, primary care physicians, specialist nurses and
senior medical students.
