Over the past few years the world's population has continued on its remarkable transition from a state of high birth and death rates to one characterized by low birth and death rates. Consequently, primary care physicians and dermatologists will see more elderly patients presenting age-related dermatological conditions. There has never been a better time for a book devoted entirely to skin care in the elderly.

Geriatric Dermatology draws together a panel of experts who provide an overview of the diagnosis and treatment of geriatric skin diseases. It begins with a general review of the aging of the world's population and the major dermatological problems that often arise in elderly patients. An added benefit is the book's coverage of geriatric skin care in nursing homes, adult congregate living, and subacute and home health settings, a subject not always found in conventional dermatology texts.

The book includes:

  • A summary of the dermatological disorders frequently encountered in the elderly, including eczematous dermatitis, skin infections, and neoplasias
  • A description of the most common geriatric hair and scalp disorders, including graying, alopecia, and scalp psoriasis
  • Comprehensive coverage of the diagnosis and treatment of leg, foot, and nail diseases
  • Detailed discussion of the treatment of superficial mycoses, scabies, and pediculosis
  • Less common geriatric conditions such as blistering diseases
  • Major adverse drug reactions on the skin
  • Leg ulcers due to venous insufficiency, arterial diseases, and diabetic nephropathy
  • Diagnosis and treatment of diabetic complications of dermatology, such scleroderma and dermopathy

    The study of diseases that impact the elderly population is a crucial and growing area of interest in medicine. Geriatricians, primary care physicians, dermatologists, and others involved in the care of the elderly will inevitably see an increase in skin diseases specific to aging. The comprehensive coverage provided by Geriatric Dermatology facilitates the diagnosis and management of these geriatric skin diseases from the common to the rare and unusual.

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Ein Kopierschutz bzw. Digital Rights Management wird bei diesem E-Book nicht eingesetzt.
