Radiological Findings in Skin Diseases and Related Conditions

Front Cover
Thieme, 1999 - Skin - 196 pages

Dermatologic symdromes are seldom mentioned in the traditional radiologic textbooks . On the other hand, in the traditional textbooks on dermatology potential radiological findings are often ignored. About 20% of the patients in general practice have skin problems; in about two hundred disorders and malignant dieseases the first lesion often appears on the skin and radiological abnormalities appear at the same time. The systematic treatment of skin diseases with concurrent radiological findings in this book provides additional important information for the diagnosis of the condition. Summarizing the clinical features of the disorders and syndromes, the book also serves as a short reference book.
