Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book reviews the use of photodynamic therapy (PDT) in dermatology, covering both established uses and its use for conditions that are not commonly treated with this method. . The book is appropriate for dermatologists in training or practice, and it would be a good resource for dermatologists planning to incorporate PDT into their practice. . With its updates and in-depth practical tips on the use of PDT that other books do not have . this is a useful book." (Roger C. Lee, Doody's Review Service, September, 2011)
