Summary note:
"Skin Infections: Diagnosis and Treatment is the first textbook to link the two disciplines of dermatology and infectious diseases. The skin is the most easily accessed and monitored of all organs and often shows the first sign of infection. All medical personnel need to be able to rapidly recognize and treat infections, especially as the number of elderly, AIDS, transplant, and cancer-surviving patients continues to rapidly increase worldwide." "Skin Infections: Diagnosis and Treatment features authors from around the world who are considered experts in their fields. Fully illustrated in color throughout, the book opens with sections on techniques for diagnosing and principles of therapy for infections of the skin. The six sections that comprise the rest of the content cover everything from common and less common infections to infections of specific skin-associated body sites and special disease categories. Infections in selected ecosystems and selected patient populations are also discussed in detail."--BOOK JACKET.
