Your concise and manageable guide to psoriasis

During the last decade, research into molecular genetics, inflammatory mechanisms and immunology has dramatically enhanced our insight into the pathogenesis of psoriasis, paralleled by a proliferation in therapeutic treatments. For those unable to keep pace with the continual volume of research on psoriasis, Textbook of Psoriasis provides a concise and digestible account of the subject.

Aimed at both the trainee and practising dermatologist, Textbook of Psoriasis concentrates mainly on the clinical presentation of psoriasis and the management of the condition using the latest pharmacological agents. In addition, it also reviews the underlying science from the point of view of causation and pathology. Containing contributions from a distinguished team of experts, the book remains in three sections which discuss the clinical morphology of the skin, its etiology and pathogenesis, and finally the current available treatments for this distressing disease.
