About this book

Photodynamic Therapy in Dermatology is the first book to cover global research on photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the management of skin disease. Although a relatively young procedure, PDT has enjoyed increased popularity during the last ten years. As research has grown, two distinct routes have appeared: the United States model and the European one, each focusing on different uses and photosensitizers. Dr. Gold has assembled the world’s experts on PDT to create a book that concisely covers every use and photosensitizer available around the world and includes comprehensive coverage of both of the FDA-approved photosensitizers in the United States, all the while carefully differentiating between off-label and FDA-approved uses of photodynamic therapy. Photodynamic Therapy in Dermatology emphasizes how to integrate PDT into practice. Toward this end, it is organized by disease category, with each chapter providing a systematic discussion of indications, PDT approaches from country to country, common side effects, prognosis as well as the underlying science. The book will be of value to dermatologists seeking a state-of-the-art review of PDT around the world, the latest in its clinical uses, and guidance on how to incorporate PDT into clinical practice.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book reviews the use of photodynamic therapy (PDT) in dermatology, covering both established uses and its use for conditions that are not commonly treated with this method. … The book is appropriate for dermatologists in training or practice, and it would be a good resource for dermatologists planning to incorporate PDT into their practice. … With its updates and in-depth practical tips on the use of PDT that other books do not have … this is a useful book.” (Roger C. Lee, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2011)
