Books on dermatology are either focused for medical s- dents or for students of dermatology. A general practitioner sees a lot of skin patients; about 17% of their patients are related to skin disease. We therefore decided to write a book that should meet the needs of a general practitioner. To make the book helpful for the primary care physician, we have focused more on common skin problems and have discussed the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders in depth to help the general practitioner in diagnosing and treating them. The chapter on the management of skin d- eases also gives the details of topical, systemic, and the phy- cal modalities used in treating skin disease. Uncommon skin diseases are only mentioned where required. The chapter on cutaneous manifestations of systemic diseases will help the general practitioner to correlate the cutaneous signs of the common medical problems seen by them. Emphasis is laid on the bacterial, fungal, and parasitic disorders that are pre- lent in tropical countries. We have included the common d- eases of other continents, as the general practitioner especially of developed countries has patients from all over the world. Congenital and hereditary disorders are discussed with the corresponding chapters, which makes it easier for the reader to remember. A number of practical points are included with each subject, and history of dermatology is included where appropriate to make the subject interesting to read.

Hair is subject to either intrinsic (i.e. physiological) aging or extrinsic (i.e. premature) aging that can be attributed to external factors. The intrinsic factors can be associated with genetic mechanisms and are subject to individual variations, whereas external factors include ultraviolet radiation, air pollution, smoking, and possibly nutrition. Leading experts have contributed to this book which offers a practical approach to the evaluation and management of various forms of alopecia, including their pathogenesis, the diagnostic procedures involved, medical treatments, and nutritional issues. A completely new surgical technique for hair transplantation that leaves behind sufficient follicle unit tissue to regenerate hairs is also described. Being comprehensive and easy-to-read, this book should be very useful for dermatologists who wish to diagnose and treat their patients with hair problems more effectively.

There is currently a lot of interest within veterinary medicine in both dermatology and exotics, yet, despite this interest, there is no single text available that focuses on both these key areas. This book, for the first time, provides a practical guide to dermatological problems in birds, reptiles, fish and mammals. Divided into the four groups, each section has a chapter introducing the structure and function of the skin of each group, a chapter on examination and diagnostic tests, and further chapters on species specific skin diseases and treatments. Written in a quick reference format and including almost 200 colour photographs, this book is a handy resource for veterinary practitioners, veterinary students and veterinary dermatologists alike.
