A Comprehensive Guide to Hidradenitis Suppurativa Book Review:

Despite being a relatively straightforward clinical diagnosis, recognition of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is highly variable, and clinical management is challenging and complex. Written by the world's leading experts in HS, A Comprehensive Guide to Hidradenitis Suppurativa brings together up-to-date scientific evidence on the diagnosis, patho-mechanisms, comorbidities, and multi-faceted medical and surgical interventions for this debilitating condition-in one convenient reference. Covers every aspect of this complex skin disorder: etiology, pathophysiology, epidemiology, medical, alternative therapies, a range of surgical options, laser treatments, and comorbidities. Discusses specific patient populations such as children, women of childbearing potential, and pregnant and breastfeeding women. Because HS has higher prevalence in people of skin of color, this patient population is well-documented in the text. Offers insights into multi-disciplinary care, patient support and education, patients at risk for rapid disease progression, and clinical and translational research. Features procedural videos covering laser therapies, de-roofing procedures, excisions and closure techniques, cryoinsufflation techniques, and special wound care material selection and techniques. Includes recent FDA-approved drugs as well as those drugs and therapies that show future promise. Identifies evidence gaps that provide a springboard to the future innovations in HS care to come. Edited and authored by global experts who have co-authored 2019 U.S. and Canadian guidelines on hidradenitis suppurativa. Enhanced eBook version included with purchase. Your enhanced eBook allows you to access all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.

The Hidden Plague Book Review:

Have you been plagued with boils, cysts, ingrown hairs, and acne-like bumps that take months to resolve, leave embarrassing scars, and cause considerable pain? Have you been to the doctor, only to leave with a prescription for antibiotics, few answers, and little to no hope? Hidradenitis supprativa (HS) is a poorly understood skin condition that is believed to affect nearly twelve million people in the United States alone. Only a small fraction of those affected have been properly diagnosed, leaving many others to suffer in silence or pursue ill-advised conventional treatment methods that fail to address the cause of this painful condition. Tara Grant, a twenty-year sufferer of HS, has become an underground legend to her Internet community of HS victims by presenting a methodical, self-tested action plan to heal naturally. The centerpiece of her holistic approach rests on the understanding that HS is an autoimmune disorder caused by leaky gut syndrome. With a few simple dietary changes that eliminate certain trigger' foods, you can heal your gut, restore your skin, reclaim your health, and rid yourself of HS symptoms forever. That means no antibiotics, no experimental surgeries, and no more pain, suffering, or confusion.

Dermatological Diseases and Cumulative Life Course Impairment Book Review:

This publication presents currently available evidence about the extent to which dermatological diseases may, through their own nature as well as a multitude of comorbidities and their important interactions with social life, impair the life course of patients. Divided into four parts, the book starts with a brilliant introduction that highlights the importance of a life course approach in medicine from a medical as well as from a psychosocial point of view. The second part provides a basic presentation of the theoretical aspects of life course research and, more specifically, to the concepts of allostatic load and cumulative life course impairment (CLCI). The third part examines concepts related to CLCI, such as the 'quality of life in dermatology' or the 'major life changing decisions' influenced by dermatological diseases. The book concludes with an in-depth investigation of specific diseases where the concept of CLCI strikes as particularly relevant. The new and innovative evidence presented in this publication makes it essential reading to anyone who has to take social implications of skin diseases into account in their decision making: dermatologists, allergologists, pediatricians and general practitioners as well as researchers in medical sociology or opinion leaders in public health.

Botulinum Toxin in Dermatology Book Review:

Even those clinicians who feel themselves far from aesthetic dermatology now recognise that BoNT-A is an extraordinary tool in their therapeutic armamentarium for treating complex disorders such as focal idiopathic hyperhidrosis. This has opened a therapeutic scenario for a group of patients very difficult to treat previously. Since the introduction of BoNT-A in the dermatological therapeutic armamentarium, in 1990, things have changed to the point that any dermatologist should now have knowledge of BoNT-A basics, and the practicalities of BoNT-A vial reconstitution and injection. Moreover, in the last years, a widespread availability of multiple different commercially available forms of BoNT-A has been for sale, thus the clinicians must now really know and consider the advantages and disadvantages of the different available products. These would include dosing/duration, immunogenicity, and spread of effect. What has not changed over the years is the safety profile of BoNT-A. The knowledge regarding its side effects and complications have greatly increased, confirming that, despite the attempts of some individuals to assert otherwise, BoNT-A remains one of the safest forms of treatment available to us as physicians. This edited collection provides a comprehensive practical guide on the use of botulinum toxin in several dermatological disorders, including focal idiopathic, axillary, palmar and plantar, craniofacial or segmental hyperhidrosis, chrono-aging, hidradenitis, and gives some suggestion on the use of BoNT-A for the treatment of several orphan skin diseases, not responding to conventional treatments like benign Hailey-Hiley disease, lichen simplex, osmidrosis. Using clear explanations, simple line drawings, diagrams and clinical pictures, it provides suggestions to improve practical knowledge on the use of BTX-A in dermatology. Hot topics include practical information for clinicians regarding the correct counselling of the patients to be treated; methods and ready to use tests to select patients to be treated; the optimal dosage and dilution according to the site of injection and the indication of use; the relevant injection sites for each condition; the correct technique of injection in the different areas of body surface; comparative dosage tables for the various formulations of toxin used; how to manage and prevent side effects related to the use of BoNT-A; common pitfalls and how to optimize outcomes; timing for the follow-up of treated patients. The authors hope that this book may be a starting point for the use of a drug that is still growing, and a useful tool for those clinicians who want to improve their knowledge about the use of BoNT-A in dermatology.

Acne Book Review:

"Acne is a common ailment for teenagers but can persist well into middle age. Although the formation of comedones in hair follicles is quite well understood, the actual causes initiating the process are less well so. Many theories have been forwarded, from hormones through cleanliness to diet, none of which fully explain the condition. Indeed the variation in presentation and classification (there are three acnes) can make precise diagnosis troublesome. It is likely the causes are multifactorial, and evidence is accruing for all the above contributors.Many books have focused on the straightforward pathophysiological processes of hormones and cleanliness but have neglected the contribution of diet as a possible guide to prevention and other medical approaches to treatment. This book will take more catholic view, with a practical focus on all the possible modes of treatment based on current pathophysiological knowledge.The aim of the book is to assemble the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle so that the resultingpicture will be comprehensible to physicians and other caregivers, and identify what is known and what needs more investigation"--Provided by publisher.
