The Challenge of Dermato-Epidemiology

Overview

Dermato-epidemiology, the study of the distribution and causes of skin diseases in human populations, has expanded rapidly over the past 14 years. Dermatologists working in this field must approach the subject with a sound understanding of epidemiological principles, and conversely, epidemiologists need to be aware of the clinical issues that dermatologists deal with day in and day out.

Overview

Dermato-epidemiology, the study of the distribution and causes of skin diseases in human populations, has expanded rapidly over the past 14 years. Dermatologists working in this field must approach the subject with a sound understanding of epidemiological principles, and conversely, epidemiologists need to be aware of the clinical issues that dermatologists deal with day in and day out. The Challenge of Dermato-Epidemiology, brings scientists from both disciplines together in the pursuit of describing, comparing, and evaluating the distribution, causes, and prevention of skin diseases in populations.

Edited by a dermatologist and an epidemiologist, this textbook provides a review of the most important and most common skin diseases. The book begins with a "toolbox" section, which provides practical guidance on designing and interpreting epidemiological studies of skin disease. Application of the theory outlined in the toolbox section is illustrated in the second section of the book, which provides a comprehensive review of the epidemiology of skin diseases.

Contributions from many international authorities provide a testimony to the enthusiasm and commitment to this growing field. One of the few textbooks of this kind, The Challenge of Dermato-Epidemiology aids all medically qualified personnel who are interested in learning more about the distribution and causes of skin disease.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Twenty-five chapters edited by a dermatologist and an epidemiologist are intended to bring the practitioners in both fields together in the pursuit of describing, comparing, and evaluating the distribution, causes, and prevention of skin diseases in populations. The first section contains a toolbox section which provides practical guidance on how to go about designing, conducting, and interpreting epidemiological studies of skin disease. The second section illustrates application of the theory and provides a review of the most common skin diseases. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
