Key Features
Vulval diseases are managed by dermatologists and by ObGyns and while expert referral centres do exist, the majority of patients are treated by non-specialists. These conditions are relatively common (approximately 15% of a gynaecologist’s caseload) and can be difficult to diagnose.

Gynecologic Dermatology is a practical, highly illustrated guide written with the needs of the general dermatologist or gynaecologist in mind. The book begins with chapters on normal anatomy; history taking and examination of the vulva; biopsy taking and general management options. Next, symptom-based chapters describe presenting problems such as pruritus, broken skin and scarring, using flowcharts to help the physician work through to a diagnosis. Finally, chapters devoted to key conditions (lichen sclerosus, lichen planus, etc) describe the pathogenesis, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis and management of the disease in question.

Abundantly illustrated and written in a practical, clinically oriented style, Gynecologic Dermatology is an indispensable reference for non-specialists that bridges the gap between dermatology and gynaecology.

Symptom-based section reflects how patients present in real life and provides algorithms/flowcharts to help with diagnosis

Includes second-line treatment options to help physician when standard treatment is unsuccessful

Lavishly illustrated with over 500 photos, diagrams, tables and boxes
