Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This is a very helpful book if you are planning to use photodynamic therapy in your office. The technique for applying Levulan and using different lasers is well described. Doses, the anticipated reaction, and discomfort patients will experience are detailed. The different indications for using PDT are discussed in various chapters.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate dermatologists in understanding and using PDT as a new treatment modality for actinic keratoses, skin rejuvenation, acne, sebaceous hyperplasia and who knows what else they will discover.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists.
Features: The best aspect of this book it that you will be able to confidently administer PDT in your office after reading it. Techniques for applying Levulan, the different light sources one can purchase to activate it, side-effects, patient instructions, and dosimetry protocols are included in multiple tables. I would have liked a discussion on what light sources would be reasonable to buy based on cost, size, and ease of use. Some of the devices looked rather large and one may need to devote one exam room to administer the treatment. There are good color photographs of before and immediately after treatment, and step-by-step photos of how to treat a wart with PDT.
Assessment: I am not aware of any other book comparable to this one on this particular subject. If you are planning to do PDT, you definitely need to read this book.
From the Publisher
REVIEW OF PREVIOUS EDITION

"Having this issue in one's library will provide a unique opportunity to possess a collection of "pearls" from the experts on PDT. In the day when lasers and light sources are becoming the future direction of procedural dermatology, one might say that not having this issue puts the dermatologist at a disadvantage." — Clinics in Dermatology
