About this book

Since extensive dermatoses can be life threatening, it is important to recognize and treat skin emergencies rapidly. This book covers all cutaneous emergencies and life threatening dermatoses, as well as true and false emergencies in the dermatologic office. It provides treatment advice for the management of major life threatening dermatoses, such as severe infections, severe drug eruptions and bullous diseases. In addition, it describes the manifestations in acutely ill patients in the ICU, as well as severe cutaneous manifestations occurring during pregnancy, after sun exposure, in cold weather, as a result of extreme poverty, and in other situations. With diagnostic clues, reader-friendly charts and clinical photographs, this clinical guide will not only benefit the hospital-based dermatologist, but will also be a helpful guide for non-dermatologists, such as ER and ICU physicians.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book aims to … describing life-threatening conditions with skin findings. … The book is written at an appropriate level for nondermatologists and dermatologists … . The algorithms are clear, easy to follow … . This book would be extremely useful in any clinic, emergency room, or office, in which emergent patients are seen. It is a handy and well organized reference and can easily guide any practitioner to quickly help diagnose and treat a patient with potentially life-threatening illness." (Kathleen E Kramer, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2009)

“With almost 200 clinical photographs, Life-Threatening Dermatoses and Emergencies in Dermatology fulfills its aim of helping primary care and emergency physicians recognize dangerous skin conditions and better interpret the skin symptoms of acutely ill patients. … The authors review the literature thoroughly, summarize treatment options, and end with practical advice. … Overall, Life-Threatening Dermatoses and Emergencies in Dermatology succeeds in aiding the dermatologist preparing for hospital call and consultations and providing reference for reviewing controversies and treatment options for severe skin disease.” (Cory A. Dunnick and Robert P. Dellavalle, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 303 (17), 2010)
