Paediatric Dermatology is an indispensible and highly-accessible guide for all healthcare professionals faced with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of children with skin diseases. Subdivided into 37 comprehensive chapters written by experts in both dermatology and paediatrics, the bookis organised according to presentation and body site rather than diagnosis, making it ideal for quick reference in the clinical setting as well as general study.It contains over 300 full-colour, high-quality clinical photographs of skin conditions, as well as simple algorithms to aid diagnosis of common presentations, such as itchy red rashes, blistering disorders, bruising and hair and nail disorders.

Advice is given on when to refer to a dermatologist, while short descriptions of approved treatment modalities are given where appropriate.
