Geriatric Dermatology

Overview of the diagnosis and treatment of geriatric skin diseases edited by Robert A. Norman

Over the past few years the world's population has continued on its remarkable transition from a state of high birth and death rates to one characterized by low birth and death rates. Consequently, primary care physicians and dermatologists will see more elderly patients presenting age-related dermatological conditions. There has never been a better time for a book devoted entirely to skin care in the elderly.

Geriatric Dermatology draws together a panel of experts who provide an overview of the diagnosis and treatment of geriatric skin diseases. It begins with a general review of the aging of the world's population and the major dermatological problems that often arise in elderly patients. An added benefit is the book's coverage of geriatric skin care in nursing homes, adult congregate living, and subacute and home health settings, a subject not always found in conventional dermatology texts.
