This book will help family practitioners, internists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants understand, diagnose, and treat dermatologic problems commonly seen in the primary care setting.
Emphasis on day-to-day outpatient office practice distinguishes Lippincott's Primary Care Dermatology from other dermatology textbooks. Coverage includes adult, geriatric, and ethnic skin.
Each diagnosis begins with a realistic case and includes detailed discussions of pathogenesis, diagnostic methods, and therapy. An at a glance therapy section summarizes primary and secondary treatments to make treatment decisions easier. The book includes over 300 full-color images of skin lesions, numerous patient handouts, and a folded-in anatomical chart for the office.
