A Handbook of Vitiligo and Colour Atlas (2nd Ed.)

Couverture de l’ouvrage A Handbook of Vitiligo and Colour Atlas

Vitiligo is a long-term condition that causes pale, white patches to develop on the skin due to lack of a chemical called melanin. It can affect any area of the skin, but most commonly occurs on skin exposed to the sun, such as the face, neck and hands (NHS Choices).

This new edition has been fully revised to provide dermatologists with the latest information on the diagnosis and treatment of vitiligo.

Presented with a step by step approach, the book begins with an overview of the condition’s historical background, genetic susceptibility, and psycho-social aspects.

The following sections discuss incidence of vitiligo with disorders of other body systems, aetiology, skin colour, diagnosis, and treatment. Complete chapters are dedicated to chemically induced leukoderma and vitiligo in children. 

The second edition features many new photographs, flowcharts and theories on the cause of vitiligo, as well as new treatment methods including lasers, tattooing, and surgery.
