During the last decade, research into molecular genetics, inflammatory mechanisms and immunology has dramatically enhanced our insight into the pathogenesis of psoriasis, paralleled by a proliferation in therapeutic possibilities. For those unable to keep pace with the continual volume of research on psoriasis, and intimidated by exhaustive single subject textbooks, theTextbook of Psoriasis has proven a concise, digestible account of the subject.

The text focuses on extensive coverage of available therapeutic strategies, providing guidelines for management, accompanied by a discussion of the clinical features of the condition and a review of the underlying aetiological and pathogenetic factors. Assembling contributions from a distinguished team of international experts, the second edition is extensively illustrated in colour, and updates the reader on recent pharmacotherapeutic developments. Textbook of Psoriasis will continue to be a valuable text for the trainee, and a useful, current reference for the practising dermatologist.
