Advances in Pediatric Dermatology
Pediatric Dermatology has matured enough as a subspecialty of dermatology. Newer developments in this field are growing at a rapid pace. We present this book in an attempt to address the advances in this subspecialty. Subjects covered vary from emerging infections like chikungunya, dengue to latest concerns in nutritional, metabolic and systemic inflammatory diseases. Genodermatosis like ichthyosis and epidermolysis bullosa, which forms the large chunk of neonatal dermatological conditions have been dealt with special reference to their recent developments and management strategies. Medical management of hemangiomas, issues in contact dermatitis amongst children and role of IVIg and biologicals are discussed. Re-look at common clinical problems like scabies, pediculosis and phrynoderma are highlights of the book. Good number of flow charts, tables and figures are incorporated to make the topics more palatable.
