Because inflammatory skin disorders represent the most common and significant non-neoplastic skin diseases, as well as the most frequently encountered diagnostic hurdle for the practicing pathologist, they are the focus of this volume. This Atlas seeks to summarize and illuminate relevant clinical and pathologic findings for non-neoplastic disorders of skin in the context of recent knowledge and in a manner that promotes practicality. Non-neoplastic diseases of the skin are ubiquitous and numerous. They are responsible for significant morbidity in patients worldwide and account for enormous time consumption and cost within the medical community. The authors hope that this Fascicle will facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of these important conditions in a manner that will benefit patients and clinicians alike.
Dermatological conditions are intimately related to stress. Stress can affect, reveal or even exacerbate a number of skin disorders, including alopecia, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, pruritus, herpes, lichen planus, rosacea and urticarial. On the other hand, the skin disease itself could induce a secondary stress for the patient, influencing his or her quality of life. There is increasing evidence that stress influences disease processes and contributes to inflammation through the modulating hypothalamicpituitary- adrenal axis – releasing neuropeptides, neurotrophins, lymphokines and other chemical mediators from nerve endings to dermal cells. This is one of the first books published on this topic, focusing more on the basic science aspects of stress in dermatopathology (oxidants, antioxidants, and oxidative injury in dermatopathology, dermatopharmacology, and dermatotoxicology.) Most Psychodermatology texts adopt a practical approach to identify all types of Psychodermatology disorders, focusing on clinical treatment. This concise title offers a comprehensive and didactic approach to skin diseases caused or exacerbated by stress, as well as covers the immunology, role and effect of stress on skin disease, and quality of life in dermatology. In the current programs of medical residency in dermatology, little is taught about the relationship between stress and skin diseases and this book is an important tool for young dermatologists and psychodermatologists in training.
Thoroughly updated, this reference focuses on the diagnosis and management of common problems that account for the majority of dermatologic complaints. The text describes distinguishing features of each disease to enable the health care provider to formulate a diagnosis.

The skin is the largest organ in the human body, and it is constantly bombarded with external stimuli. It offers protection and insulation, prevents dehydration, and senses the environment. But irritants, infections, and inherited genetic mutations cause hundreds of skin disorders, ranging from mild cosmetic conditions to serious diseases such as cancer. Written and edited by experts in the field, this collection from Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Medicine provides a comprehensive review of the biology of the skin, its numerous functions, and the diseases that affect it. Contributors discuss the various components of the epidermis, dermis, hair follicles, glands, and nerve endings that make up the skin, the molecular pathways and processes that underlie their development and function, and what happens when these processes go awry. The important functions of skin stem cell populations in tissue development, homeostasis, and repair are described, as are the roles of resident and recruited cells in inflammatory responses. Several chapters are devoted to cutaneous disorders, including alopecias, carcinomas, melanomas, psoriasis, and genetic diseases such as epidermolysis bullosa. Topics such as age-related changes to the skin, the roles of resident microbes in skin health and disease, and advances in therapies for cutaneous disorders are also covered. This volume is therefore a vital reference for dermatologists, cancer biologists, cell and developmental biologists, immunologists, and all who seek to understand the numerous functions and diseases of this major organ.
Eczema is the most common skin disorder in the industrialized world, followed closely by psoriasis, rosacea and acne. However, conventional medicine still offers no permanent solution to these conditions.In this book, natural health author Shann Nix Jones tells the incredible story of how she discovered a chemical-free method to help treat these conditions, during her struggle to heal her son’s eczema and save her husband from a life-threatening MRSA superbug infection. Shann’s staggering discovery is that eczema is not actually a skin condition – it’s an autoimmune disorder. Your skin is simply a map of your gut; in order to heal the skin, you must first heal the gut.Shann reveals the latest scientific research about the ‘microbiome’ – the vast ecosystem of microorganisms that lives inside us. In simple, easy-to- understand language, she explains the gut-skin connection: what eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and acne really are; why they’re often accompanied by hay fever, asthma, IBS and food allergies; and how adopting the kefir-based Good Skin Solution can help to treat both the symptoms and the underlying causes of your skin condition.If you, or anyone you know, are suffering from an on-going skin condition, this book could be the lifeline you’ve been waiting for.
