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, the
Textbook 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.
