Abstract
This book is a richly illustrated account of the clinical features, microscopic anatomy, and management of acne, acne-like disorders, and rosacea. The coverage includes all aspects of these diseases, from physiology to pathology, bacteriology, and endocrinology; special emphasis is placed on histopathology. Moreover, the full spectrum of pharmacological and physical methods of controlling the disorders are critically examined and the widely experienced team of authors present in detail their personal strategies for successful treatment. Since it was first published, Acne and Rosacea has become a well-known classic. This fourth edition has been completely revised and updated, with entirely new chapters on topics such as etiopathogenesis, auto-inflammatory acne syndromes, the role of nutrition, and novel therapies. The text is supplemented by selected references and a wealth of clinical and histopathological pictures, including additional high-definition photographs. The book is designed for all those physicians--dermatologists, general practitioners, pediatricians, gynecologists, pharmacologists, and surgeons--who must identify and treat the many different forms of acne and rosacea.

Abstract
Dermatologists commonly treat acne, which affects 40 to 50 million Americans each year and about 85 percent of all patients at some point in their lives. Dermatologists, primary care doctors, and pediatricians see these patients every day in practice. It is important to treat the skin effectively not only to reduce the risk of physical scarring, but also to address the negative psychosocial impact this disease carries. Improving the skin can improve self-confidence, interpersonal relationships, and performance in school or at work. Acneiform Eruptions in Dermatology is a practical, full-color guide to the differential diagnosis of acne vulgaris and the treatment of acne-like conditions. It is organized into sections by subtype of condition (e.g., infections, genetic syndromes, medication-caused) and includes a section of variants of acne that may be misdiagnosed. Within the sections, individual chapters discuss each variant of the condition and begin with a helpful bulleted summary of its defining clinical features. Extensive color clinical images appear throughout the book.

Abstract
This handbook covers the essential subject areas of cutaneous biometrics, including acne, aging, genetics, eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, rosacea, wound healing, and more. Erythema of rosacea and the risk of skin ulceration associated with oral nicorandil therapy are covered in detail. Various areas of acne are addressed, including acne severity grading, the assessment of general health and quality of life in patients with acne, and the effect of automated online counseling on clinical outcomes and quality of life among adolescents with acne vulgaris. Other topics include the development and validation of a clinical scale for the evaluation of forearm skin photoaging and a scoring system for mucosal disease severity. This is an ideal reference for biomedical engineering researchers and clinicians working in the field of dermatology interested in a deeper understanding of cutaneous biometrics and how it can be applied to their work. This book also broadens reader understanding of the importance of creating meaningful dermatological patient outcome measurements and the use of the physician global assessment in a clinical setting to measure and track patient outcomes. Details the guidelines on the measurement of ultraviolet radiation levels in ultraviolet phototherapy.

Abstract
Chemical peeling is a well-known method used to restore a more youthful appearance and improve dermatologic defects. In recent years the technique has been marked by constant innovation. This book is the first atlas on chemical peels and has been significantly revised and updated since the first edition so as to reflect the state of the art in the field. The various types of chemical peel and peeling techniques, including new combined procedures, are first discussed in a step-by-step manner with the aid of supporting illustrations. Pathogenesis and treatment options are then considered, with each author reporting on his or her personal experience and preferred approach for different diseases and conditions, including acne, rosacea, melasma, photoaging, postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, actinic keratosis, and dark skin. An entirely new section addresses how to deal with side-effects and complications of the different procedures. This atlas has been specifically designed as a reference tool for dermatologists who deal with cosmetology. In particular, by providing clear and practical information on the different peeling procedures and their indications, it will prove invaluable for dermatologists and other doctors who wish to start performing chemical peels.

Abstract
Minimally invasive aesthetic procedures are an important part of dermatologists’ day-to-day clinical routine. However, plastic surgeons are also becoming more willing to explore them, and minimally invasive cosmetic and aesthetic procedures are now an established interdisciplinary topic. Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Procedures: A Guide for Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons addresses the needs of both these specialties. It provides a comprehensive overview of the most relevant and widely used minimally invasive procedures, presented in a practical and straightforward style. Rather than a broad overview of the literature, it offers a step-by-step guide to clinical procedures. Each chapter explores a single clinical procedure, discussing the theoretical basis; the materials needed; the methods and techniques; clinical follow-up; before-and-after illustrations; as well as the side effects and complications and their management. It also includes a summary of tips and relevant references. With more than a hundred procedures presented and discussed in a clinically applicable format, Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Procedures: A Guide for Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons is a practical manual for all dermatology and plastic surgery practitioners who are interested in aesthetic medicine.

Abstract
Differential diagnosis in pediatric dermatology requires not only a direct experience in the field, but also an inclination to symptoms observations and analysis.This book, the first exclusively devoted to this topic, covers the full range of relevant conditions: inherited skin disorders; nevi; viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections; acne; allergic diseases; autoimmune skin disorders; connective tissue diseases; tumors; and miscellaneous conditions. Each chapter addresses the differential diagnosis between two (or occasionally three or four) dermatological conditions. All chapters are just two pages long, containing between two and six images and a very short text emphasizing the clinical differences between the diseases in question. At the end of each chapter, a summary highlights one or two characteristics essential for the differential diagnosis. The volume will represent an ideal tool for pediatric dermatologists, pediatricians, and GPs, and will help them in the diagnosic process.

Abstract
The series "Clinical Approaches and Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology" intends to be a practical guide in Cosmetic Dermatology. Procedures in cosmetic dermatology are very popular and useful in medicine, indicated to complement topical and oral treatments not only for photodamaged skin but also for other dermatosis such as acne, rosacea, scars, etc. Also, full-face treatments using peelings, lasers, fillers and toxins are increasingly being used, successfully substituting or postponing the need for plastic surgeries. Altogether, these techniques not only provide immediate results but also help patients to sustain long-term benefits, both preventing/treating dermatological diseases and maintaining a healthy and youthful skin. Throughout this series, different treatments in Cosmetic Dermatology will be discussed in detail covering the use of many pharmacological groups of cosmeceuticals, the new advances in nutraceuticals and emerging technologies and procedures. This volume, entitled "Daily Routine in Cosmetic Dermatology" will be an important tool for aesthetic doctors, practicing dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and all other physicians interested in the field of aesthetic medicine. It discloses in detail the semiology and general treatments in cosmetic dermatology, providing the state-of-the-art regarding patients' evaluation, photoprotection, nutraceuticals and cosmeceuticals and special prescriptions. Also check the other volumes: Volume II - Chemical and Physical Peelings Volume III - Lasers, Lights and Other Technologies Volume IV - Botulinum Toxins, Fillers and Related Substances.

Abstract
Patient adherence to a given treatment plan directly correlates to the quality of disease outcome. In looking at the how and why behind patient adherence and non-adherence to a treatment regimen, understanding realistic expectations of a patient can provide a beneficial guide towards providing optimal healthcare. Treatment Adherence in Dermatology offers insight and strategies for understanding and promoting treatment adherence with a focus on dermatological conditions, specifically psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and acne. Reasons for non-adherence are investigated particularly in populations such as children and patients with multiple co-morbidities. The proposed text provides patient and physician-centered strategies alongside technological advancements to promote adherence. Written for the practicing dermatologist, this title will find audience with primary care physicians, students, residents, and other practicing doctors alike.

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
Bringing together the latest knowledge on the growth and development of children and the most important abnormalities of puberty, this comprehensive text presents the current views on the pathogenesis, diagnostic possibilities and therapeutic options of the main deviations from the normal course of puberty (e.g., precocious and delayed puberty). The chain of physical and hormonal changes in the transitional years is carefully followed, including the regulation of the hypothalamic pulse generator as well as the timing of puberty. Further topics include growth disturbances, adolescent varicocele, adolescent gynecomastia, polycystic ovary syndrome, pubertal acne, and the psychosocial development of adolescents with pubertal abnormalities. Written and edited by internationally noted experts, Puberty will be an excellent resource for pediatricians, endocrinologists, gynecologists, andrologists, urologists, family practitioners, child psychologists and public health specialists--all those who will be challenged in their everyday practice with the problems of puberty.

Abstract
This book is an up-to-date practical guide to the treatment of both common and unusual bacterial, fungal, and protozoal skin infections. Antibiotics and other treatment options for common skin diseases such as acne, rosacea, erysipelas, and impetigo are extensively discussed, and a thorough update is provided on therapies for fungal infections in the nails, hair, and skin. Current treatments for skin symptoms associated with sexually transmitted diseases are also explored in detail. As the sulfonamides and tetracyclines have long held a special status in dermatology and venereology, an individual chapter focuses on these drugs and their potential side-effects. A range of mycobacterial infections are discussed, and a further chapter considers the treatment of protozoal infections, including leishmaniasis, which are often unfamiliar to practitioners in the Western world. This handy book, with its helpful graphics and clear lists of symptoms, treatments, and practical tips, will be an ideal quick reference for the busy practitioner.

Abstract
The series “Clinical Approach and Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology” intends to be a practical guide in Cosmetic Dermatology. Procedures in cosmetic dermatology are very popular and useful in medicine, indicated to complement topical and oral treatments not only for photodamaged skin but also for other dermatosis such as acne, rosacea, scars, etc. Also, full-face treatments using peelings, lasers, fillers and toxins are increasingly being used, successfully substituting or postponing the need for plastic surgeries. Altogether, these techniques not only provide immediate results but also help patients to sustain long-term benefits, both preventing/treating dermatological diseases and maintaining a healthy and youthful skin. Throughout this series, different treatments in Cosmetic Dermatology will be discussed in detail covering the use of many pharmacological groups of cosmeceuticals, the new advances in nutraceuticals and emerging technologies and procedures. This volume addresses the most important physical approaches in cosmetic dermatology, disclosing their uses and advantages.
