Richly pigmented skin is the most common skin type internationally

Historically, dermatology has focused on white skin. But rich pigmentation can lead to differences in presentation, disease course and outcome, and reaction to treatment. Some dermatologic conditions are seen predominantly or only in richly pigmented skin.

Ethnic Dermatology: Principles and Practice provides a practical approach to the dermatology of non-white skin. Written from a global perspective to include Asian, African-Caribbean and North African skin types, it covers all the bases of dermatology including:

  • Grading scales in dermatologic disease
  • Pediatric dermatology
  • Dermatology and systemic disease
  • Drug eruptions
  • Hair and scalp disorders
  • Cosmetic dermatology

With a central focus on practical action from an international cast of authors, Ethnic Dermatology: Principles and Practice gives you the clinical tools you need when skin colour matters.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book joins the library of references on skin of color. It is a good introductory textbook to learn about the special concerns and variation in clinical presentations of dermatoses in darker skinned individuals.”  (Doody’s, 2 August 2013)

Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Private Practice)
Description: The emphasis in this general dermatology book is on the clinical characteristics seen in skin of color. Discussions focus on which drugs may be more of a potential problem in darker skin types and skin diseases that are more prevalent in patients of certain ethnic backgrounds.
Purpose: The purpose is to discuss diagnostic tips and dermatological treatments that are unique to ethnic skin types.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists.
Features: Color photographs show how common dermatoses can present differently in skin of color compared with Caucasian skin. Chapters are devoted specifically to problems unique to Fitzpatrick skin 5-6, including hypertrophic scarring, keloids, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation disorders. Discussions of the usual clinical course of diseases and their treatments are presented. Any specific considerations for ethnic skin types are mentioned.
Assessment: This book joins the library of references on skin of color. It is a good introductory textbook to learn about the special concerns and variation in clinical presentations of dermatoses in darker skinned individuals..
