Infectious Diseases of the Skin

Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, Mar 27, 2009 - Medical - 160 pages

Infections remain the leading cause of death worldwide and as new antibiotics are developed, organisms develop mechanisms of resistance. Successful treatment of skin infections relies on accurate and swift diagnosis, and visual inspection remains the most important means to that end. This book provides a pictorial guide to the diagnosis of common bacterial, fungal, and viral skin infections, as well as of arthropods of medical importance. The text is divided into chapters by class of organism, and in each chapter by clinical entity. It will be of lasting value to dermatologists and general physicians in practice and training.
