Atopic Dermatitis: Inside Out or Outside In, 1st Edition
- Analyzes the pathophysiology of atopic dermatitis from two distinct fronts: inside out and outside in—an approach that is unique in the field.
- Begins with an overview of the disease, then delves into both internal and external pathogenic factors, followed by the Clinician’s Corner, which offers practical recommendations for treatment.
- Organizes therapeutic discussions by corresponding pathophysiology rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.
- Covers recently FDA-approved and emerging medications, as well as atopic comorbidities.
- Enhanced eBook version included with purchase. Your enhanced eBook allows you to access all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.
