Summary It has been estimated that within 30 years the majority of persons living in the United States will be non-Caucasian. Already health care is being aimed toward diseases in these groups. This unique, comprehensive book has coverage that goes beyond the typical ethnic dermatology book that covers black skin and includes Asians, Hispanics, native Americans and Slavs. The author's approach is to present dermatological disease in ethnic skin by following four general categories: common diseases, diseases rare in ethnic skin, diseases more commonly seen in ethnic skin, and diseases almost unique to ethnic skin. Written by experts, the book includes numerous high quality images to facilitate learning
