Beschreibung:

This colour atlas has been designed as a practical guide for all physicians dealing with patients suffering from exotic skin diseases and for medical staff or other specialists working in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. The text concentrates on providing succint descriptions of the clinical features, diagnosis and differential diagnosis, and management of skin disorders that occur in the tropics and subtropics. The special feature of this atlas is the informative range of illustrations showing the same diseases in patients of differing ethnic groups and skin colours. Because of modern tourism and jet travel, many previously rare skin diseases from remote areas can now appear in any physician`s consulting room.
