Clinical cases in dermatology.
Contents Diagnostic dilemmas -- What to do when only some of the tests are positive but others are negative -- The second opinion with partial treatment -- When might immunoEM be useful? -- When to send sera for blotting and ELISA -- Therapeutic issues -- When steroids are contraindicated -- When the disease is recalcitrant -- When it keeps relapsing -- When topical therapy is preferred
Summary This clinical case book serves as a useful guide for dermatologists, internists, family practitioners, pediatricians, and anyone else charged with the care of the skin. The case-based format distinguishes this work from a reference-style textbook, instead allowing readers to relate the presented cases to their own patients. Clinical Cases in Autoimmune Blistering Diseases provides help and insight for clinicians in managing this group of serious and debilitating skin conditions, with each case serving as a springboard for further pursuit and more extensive training. It will enable those new to the field to begin to develop a literacy and competence in autoimmune blistering diseases, while experienced dermatologists will find new ways to sharpen their diagnostic and treatment skills
