Overview

Representing a unique and important initiative in the study of cutaneous medicine, Women's Dermatology: From Infancy to Maturity takes you through all aspects of skin disorders as they affect women - from basic concepts and general topics to specific considerations, such as culture, menstrually-related conditions, and drug abuse. It is an authoritative clinical reference that describes both normal and pathologic skin of the female patient throughout the natural course of life.

The editors have invited renowned contributors from around the world to develop chapters in their areas of expertise, written specifically from the point of view of gender variations. The result is an all-encompassing volume comprised of 52 chapters and over 300 full-color photographs. Women's Dermatology: From Infancy to Maturity is an invaluable clinical reference for all dermatologists, pediatricians specializing in cutaneous medicine, and all physicians concerned with the optimal care of their female patients.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: The title suggests that dermatologic topics specifically pertaining to women are covered in this book. However, there is considerable overlap with general dermatology subjects that are not specific to women.
Purpose: The goals are ambitious and are not adequately met in this book. The authors try to accomplish too many things and succeed in covering many topics but not as in-depth as I would like to have seen.
Audience: The book is aimed at general medical practitioners and gynecologists who have a predominantly female practice.
Features: There are interesting chapters such as transexuality, menstrual-associated skin disorders, battered women, and cultural skin attributes. Unfortunately, they consist of only a few pages and the information is presented in a very general manner. The chapter on transexuality has a long discussion on tattoo removal but there is a paucity of other issues a dermatologist may face with such patients. The chapters on breast and vulvar disorders are lacking in detail on treatment.
Assessment: The concept of a book devoted to female dermatology is a good one. The authors need to narrow their scope of coverage to succeed. In the meantime, I would recommend one of the other texts available on vulvar dermatology and dermatoses of pregnancy to supplement one's library on female dermatology.
Booknews
This text provides a study of both normal and pathologic skin, as it may concern the female patient due to the structure and function of the skin, hormonal influences, and sociocultural and psycho-social factors. The 52 chapters begin with a description of the various phases of female sexual development, from the newborn through adulthood, including changes that take place in the genitals during puberty and during the fertile periods. They also give guidelines for the gynecological examination and highlight special female conditions such as menstruation, menopause, pregnancy, the difficult task of drug selection during pregnancy, and problems related to the cultural attributes of women. Extensively illustrated with color images. Edited by dermatologists Lawrence Charles Parish (Jefferson Medical College), Sarah Brenner (Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center) and Marcia Ramos-e- Silva (Federal U. of Rio de Janeiro). Annotation c.
