A fresh approach to the consummate classic in pediatric dermatology

Skin disease is a major feature of childhood becauseof the early onset of genetic disease manifestations, and the susceptibility of immature skin to pathogens and environmental disruption. Pediatric Dermatology has seen significant advances over the last decade, in particular through molecular genetics research.

This third edition of the Harper/Oranje/Prose classic continues to provide state–of–the–art information on all aspects of skin disease. The new generation of editors brings fresh and innovative thinking to both common and rare skin ailments. Major revisions by 350 authors, including more than 150 new authors, from a wide global perspective together with 10 additional new chapters reflect emerging aspects of paediatric dermatology such as:

  • disease classification
  • the role of dermoscopy
  • the use of biological drugs in children
  • genetic mechanisms of disease
  • prenatal diagnosis
  • gene therapy

Harper′s Textbook of Pediatric Dermatology overflows with crucial clinical insights and stunning research information across the breadth of pediatric dermatology. Complete with a fascinating historical overview of the specialty′s development and a brand new reader friendly text design, this third edition supports and guides the daily practice of both dermatologists and pediatricians.
