Doody Core Title
Substantially revised and updated, this practical, lavishly illustrated atlas now makes it easier than ever for clinicians at all levels of experience to arrive at an accurate diagnosis for both common and rare genital dermatologic lesions.
It features nearly 500 new photographs, an easy-to-use diagnostic approach, and expanded sections on clinical descriptions, pathophysiology, and treatment.
Illustrations are arranged by appearance for rapid identification – even for conditions never previously encountered.
- Arranges core chapters by disease presentation, including patches and plaques, papules and nodules, and ulcers.
- Includes variable morphologies, making it easier to arrive at a correct diagnosis even when encountering an atypical appearance of a common condition.
- Features chapters on special issues such as symptoms (itching and pain), immunosuppression, and pediatric, psychologic, and geriatric aspects of genital conditions.
- Ideal for any clinician who sees men and women with disorders of the external genitalia, including dermatologists, gynecologists, urologists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, and physician assistants.
