  • Description
  • Details

Dermatologists are often the first medical professionals to see patients with HIV infection, as skin diseases are common in immunodeficiency syndrome. This book aims to help dermatologists to recognize the cutaneous manifestations of HIV infection and AIDS, so that diagnosis can be made quickly and therapy begun as soon as possible.

The book covers the entire spectrum of HIV-associated cutaneous diseases, and emphasizes how they present in immunocompromised patients. A wide range of skin disorders are covered, including infections caused by bacterial, parasitic and fungal agents. The latest treatments are described, including Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART). Each condition is discussed in detail, with information on clinical presentation, histopathological findings, morphology, and treatment - as well as possible side-effects. The text is accompanied by colour photos of the highest quality.
