Atlas of Dermatological Conditions in Populations of African Ancestry
This book presents the nuances of dermatology from the African diaspora and the tropics. It not only addresses the dark pigmentation of the patient’s skin and the occurrence of tropical infections, but also the socioeconomic conditions which lead to unique features and the development of skin diseases. Chapters present numerous dermatological cases, with clear/relevant pictures, to serve as illustration of how skin conditions present in African/dark skin. Of these specific conditions, the book includes chapters on eczema, bullous diseases, hair disorders, acne, and papulosquamous disorders. Additionally, chapters address emotionally sensitive and socioeconomic-related issues such as skin bleaching and dermatological manifestations of HIV/AIDS, an infectious condition that disproportionately affects those residing in sub-Saharan Africa. Expertly written text is supplemented by hundreds of high-quality, real patient photos. Written by doctors living and treating patients in the tropical environment of Africa, Atlas of Dermatological Conditions in Populations of African Ancestry is an essential tool in broadening the scope of care for professionals and residents in dermatology alike.
