Atopic eczema is the most common and persistent dermatological condition seen in general practice. Over the last few years, advances have been made in the genetics of atopy in general, newer treatments have been introduced for topical use, and new concepts suggested in the etiology. Thus, a new text on atopic eczema is both timely and useful. Written by one of the world’s most distinguished dermatologists, An Atlas of Atopic Eczema provides full coverage of this skin disorder, including new information on calcineurin inhibitors and their therapeutic options. Extensively illustrated in color, the atlas explores topics such as genetics, etiology, pathogenesis, prognosis, clinical features, differential diagnosis, relationships to other types of eczema, and treatment. The author lifts the veil of confusion and helps physicians stay on top of the challenge the increased incidence of eczemas present.
“In this slim but focused book, Professor Lionel Fry has captured all we need to know about eczema. …replete with diagrams, helpful reminders in illustrative form, and plenty of pictures of the many expressions of eczema. The teachings of the renowned Professor Fry are delightfully presented in both word and illustration.”
