It is estimated that around 15% of the population suffer from atopic dermatitis or eczematous disorders at some point in their lifetime, causing a significant percentage of visits to dermatologists, primary care physicians, and allergists. Despite much current research interest, the pathophysiology of these disorders and their optimum treatment remain uncertain.

In Atopic Dermatitis & Eczematous Disorders, the authors discuss all clinical aspects and treatment of atopic dermatitis and other eczema variants, including:

  • Seborrheic dermatitis
  • Nummular eczema
  • Stasis dermatitis
  • Exfoliative erythroderma
  • HIV-related dermatoses
  • Ichthyosis vulgaris
  • Hand dermatitis
  • Immunodeficiency disorders

The book also discusses complications such as secondary infection and ophthalmic disease, as well as legal aspects.

Goodheart's Same-Site Differential Diagnosis is an easy-to-use reference for primary care physicians who are often on the front line of diagnosing and treating skin disorders. Organized in a head-to-toe fashion, the book presents 400 full-color images of common skin disorders and places them side by side with their clinical look-alikes or other diagnostic possibilities that occur at the same anatomic site. Since many skin disorders tend to occur at specific sites, this organization by region is helpful in narrowing the number of diagnostic possibilities and reaching a specific diagnosis or differential diagnosis quickly and accurately.

The book presents differential diagnoses by region, along with key physical findings, laboratory tests, and historical information to help make a definitive diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is made, the management of each condition is described in step-by-step fashion on a facing page. Recommended first-line, second-line, and alternative therapies are briefly listed.

A companion website will offer the fully searchable text and many additional images.

Mohs surgery is a highly effective treatment for certain cutaneous and oral pharyngeal cancers. The procedure allows for the precise and complete removal of cancers while preserving significant amounts of normal tissue. Through the presentation and orientation of the specimens' complete surgical margin on pathology slides, the location of tumor foci and other relevant findings can be correlated with their locations on the surgical wound. The ability to create perfect slides for histological examination lies at the core of effective Mohs surgery. These procedures have a 99 percent cure rate for certain cancers when implemented correctly. This book describes the methods the dermatologist, pathologist, or technician can use to optimize the Mohs technique and produce the highest-quality slides and highest cure rates possible.
