Practical and user-friendly, this is the ideal guide to the diagnosis and treatment of psoriasis, helping you navigate a logical management pathway through a complex maze of possibilities. Psoriasis is a cruel disease that can seriously affect the sufferer’s quality and length of life.

In full color throughout and excellently illustrated, key highlights include: easily understandable description of the psoriasis pathogenesis; a strong emphasis on the clinical features of psoriasis; careful consideration of comorbid conditions as part of the psoriatic spectrum to be managed; coverage of both traditional and contemporary management approaches; plenty of diagnostic algorithms and management protocols to aid the daily practical care of patients. Brought to you by several of the world’s leading authorities on the subject, Psoriasis: Diagnosis and Management is an essential purchase for the dermatologist.

The doctors that deal with psoriasis on a daily or weekly basis may not sit down and discuss the disease at length with their patients.
Author: Noah Daniels
The doctors that deal with psoriasis on a daily or weekly basis may not sit down and discuss the disease at length with their patients. Getting information on the internet is not always easy to do, and varies from the very hopeful to the very discouraging. Since psoriasis is such a complex disease, one or two web pages can easily give the wrong impression. One web page has a case history of someone whose symptoms disappeared with three treatments, and have not returned for eight years and counting. Another website has a person that has fought their symptoms for several years, and those symptoms have not responded to any treatment. It is important to get a balanced view of this complex disease. This ebook was made for everyone who wants or needs to know about all the aspects of psoriasis. It was written for people who know very little about the disease, through people who want up to date information about the current treatments. It covers all the different types of symptoms of psoriasis, and how each is treated. It has been a wealth of information for anyone who has just been diagnosed, and has offered help and hope for those that have suffered with psoriasis for years. People with psoriasis not only suffer from the physical symptoms of the disease, but also have to deal with a very different change in their appearance.

Over the past 30 years, there has been increasing recognition of psoriatic arthritis as a distinct clinical entity. Psoriatic arthritis occurs mostly in patients with psoriasis and may affect up to 1% of the general population. It has many similarities to other forms of spondyloarthritis, and must be differentiated from related conditions. Given that most patients with psoriatic arthritis have skin and musculoskeletal diseases that significantly affect their quality of life and function, patients are ideally managed in a multidisciplinary clinic with rheumatologists, dermatologists and a nurse specialist, physical therapist and occupational therapist. Psoriatic Arthritis covers the epidemiology and diagnostic and classification criteria, describing the clinical features of the disease, including skin and nail involvement, articular, and other extra-articular manifestations. Laboratory features and imaging characteristics are covered in detail, along with co-morbidities and their impact. A comprehensive review of skin disease therapy is also provided, along with the various treatment options for joint disease, including traditional disease modifying therapy and newer biologic agents . This comprehensive yet concise and practical volume is the perfect guide to psoriatic arthritis for the busy practitioner, and will be of interest to trainees and specialists in rheumatology and dermatology.
