About this book

The term “dermatologic emergency” is rarely used, and a dermatologist is typically not the first physician called when a patient presents in the emergency department. However, largely under-recognized dermatoses can be life-threatening if not diagnosed and treated in a timely fashion. Buka's Emergencies in Dermatology addresses the need for a concise, portable reference that can be used by emergency medicine and dermatology physicians and residents alike.

 

This book, heavily illustrated with color images, proves to be especially critical if a community-based hospital does not have a dermatology department and the responsibility for initial diagnosis falls to the emergency room or critical care physician. However, since the majority of cutaneous outbreaks are not life-threatening, it is often the case that emergency department personnel are less equipped to diagnose these conditions correctly.

 

Buka's Emergencies in Dermatology addresses this concern and focuses on the most critical issues related to emergencies in dermatology, beginning with a general overview of the basics of critical care for dermatologic emergencies, then moving to neonatal and pediatric emergencies, infectious emergencies, drug eruptions, and HIV-AIDS-related emergencies in dermatology, just to name a few.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book offers an outline for thinking about the differential diagnosis for serious skin diseases one would not want to miss. … The audience is emergency room physicians, dermatologists, and residents. … The color photographs are overall quite good quality. … The authors have compiled important dermatologic diseases that both dermatology residents and physicians who are not dermatologists need to be aware of. … It is a useful outline for nondermatologists and medical students and residents seeking an introduction to potential life-threatening skin conditions.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2013)
