Diagnosis of Aging Skin Diseases

di Norman  • 2008  • dettagli prodotto


A greater percentage of the population is now in the over-65 age group, with this trend expected to continue well into the 21st century. Consequently, geriatric dermatology is a specialty that is receiving particular attention, not only in terms of patient numbers but also the scope of treatment, with more treatment regimens becoming available to dermatologists. Diagnosis of Aging Skin Diseases provides the clinician with an encyclopedia of geriatric dermatoses that can be used on rounds or in a reference environment. It provides a structured illustrated review of the various lesions encountered, which will make this an invaluable reference resource for all physicians dealing with older skin. It also places special emphasis on illnesses originating in other organ systems that are made manifest on the skin and often complicate the diagnostic and therapeutic picture. The manifestations of dermatologic disease in the geriatric population are often subtly different to those in younger age groups. Using a practical and clinical approach, Dr Norman and his contributor panel of leading authorities in the field have compiled a vital reference for dermatology fellows and residents, geriatricians and related clinicians to identify dermatoses specific to the aging population.Table of contents The Demographic Imperative.-Structure and Function of Aging Skin.-Photo-aging.-Aging and the Skin: The Geriatrician’s Perspective.-White and Red Lesions of the Oral Mucosa.-Nail and Hair Disorders in the Elderly.-Rosacea in the Elderly.-Variations in Aging in Ethnic Skin and Hair: Corrective and Cosmetic Treatment.-Skin Cancer in Elderly Patients.-Differential Diagnosis of Autoimmune Bullous Diseases in the Elderly.-Geriatric Fungal Infections.-Xerosis and Pruritis in the Elderly: Recognition and Management.-Sarcoidosis in Aging Skin.-Inflammatory Scaling Dermatoses.-The Cutaneous Manifestations of Nutritional Deficiencies.-Infestations, Bites, and Stings in Aging Skin.-Psychoneurodermatologic Disorders.-Common Vascular Disorders in the Elderly.-Pressure Ulcers.-Cutaneous Manifestations of Diabetes.-Pain Management in Acute and Chronic Wounds-Geriatric Dermatology: Head to Toe Evaluation.-Selected Geriatric Dermatology Case Studies.
