Abstract
This book identifies the most common presentations and essential features of top dermatological conditions in patients with skin of color. It presents practical information in a case-based organization to assist dermatologists in clinical decision making, and discusses important cultural beliefs that must be considered in order to provide optimal care to patients with skin of color. There is an increasing demand for dermatologic treatments in patients with skin of color, as well as an accompanying need for education and training in this quickly expanding market. Skin of color is a key topic within dermatology as specific conditions can be harder to diagnose effectively in darker skin, and patients' treatment can be compromised by this. Clinical Cases in Skin of Color: Adnexal, Inflammation, Infections, and Pigmentary Disorders is a concise resource with practical guidance for board certified dermatologists and dermatologists in training.

Abstract
This clinical case book serves as a useful guide for dermatologists, surgeons, family practitioners, residents and anyone who is engaged in the practice of cutaneous surgery to manage skin cancer. The case-study-based format allows readers to understand planning of procedures and surgical techniques, and the differing cases are designed to relate to different situations that may arise within dermatosurgery practices. Clinical Cases in Skin Cancer Surgery and Treatment provides relevant surgical and anatomical tips, and finer points of surgical techniques gleaned from the author's experience. Each chapter covers a different type of case, flap or skin graft closure, and will help the attending physician or surgeon in improving their skill levels and knowledge. The Editors and contributors provide enough detail to allow residents or family practitioners to develop further competence in the surgical management of skin cancers, while ensure that this book serves as a useful practical guide. For more experienced cutaneous surgeons, the book helps in fine-tuning techniques and reinforcing good practice methods.

Abstract
The demographic imperative has reached the shores of dermatology. By 2020 those aged 65 years and older will comprise a quarter of the US population, and this percentage will be even more significant in less developed countries. As a specialty, dermatology needs to respond to this unprecedented demographic shift. Over the last few decades dermatology has enjoyed a sustained improvement in understanding of the basic science of skin biology and an increase in proven effectiveness of clinical interventions. As dermatologists, leadership must be in place to provide specialized care for older adults; dermatology should be at the forefront of prevention and treatment of skin diseases and be able to recognize the dermatologic signs of chronic systemic disease so often noted in our elderly. Clinical Cases in Geriatric Dermatology represents a practical tool in understanding the skin of older people and includes chapters on the common presentations of dermatologic disease in the elderly population. It presents practical information to assist in making the correct clinical decision. The concise case-based organization of this book will help those in dermatology training programs, but will also be a welcome revision tool for qualified and recertifying dermatologists.
