Psychocutaneous Medicine offers an overview of diseases in psychosomatic dermatology and creates a bridge between cutaneous and emotional disorders using extraordinary illustrations and clinical images of psychosomatic dermatology. It covers both common and rare diseases and helps doctors and psychologists recognize and deal with psychosocial features in dermatology and venerology. This superbly illustrated clinical atlas with concise text passages follows the American diagnosis classification DSM-V and current evidence-based guidelines. It allows rapid recognition of masked emotional disorders and thus administration of the most effective and efficient treatment as early as possible.

Hone your diagnostic vision for psychosomatic disorders. Treat your patients efficiently and effectively. Psychocutaneous Medicine is a picture atlas and textbook that is indispensable for dermatologists, psychologists, pediatricians and general practitioners.
