Abstract

Autoimmune bullous diseases are a group of rare skin diseases characterized by intraepidermal and subepidermal bullae formations due to autoantibodies directed against the structural proteins of the epidermis or the dermal-epidermal junction. Early and correct diagnosis and adequate treatment of autoimmune bullous diseases are important as they cause morbidity and mortality in the affected patients. This book, which gives detailed information about autoimmune bullous diseases, has two sections and nine chapters with sixteen contributing authors. The first section describes the structure and tasks of desmosomes and basement membrane zone, which consist of the major antigens of skin integrity targeted by autoantibodies. The second section is about the epidemiology, etiopathogenesis, mucocutaneous, histopathologic and laboratory findings, and therapy of autoimmune bullous diseases.

Abstract

The cause of psoriasis is still unknown, though exposure to definite agents (throat streptococcal infection), smoking, alcohol consumption, certain medicines (lithium), and local irritation or injury to the skin may be risk factors for persons genetically predisposed to the disease. Psoriasis symptoms can vary extensively, from mild rashes to severe situations. Treatment consists of various modalities used locally on the skin and taken by mouth. This book gathers and presents information on targeted treatments for psoriasis in four chapters. Following the Introductory chapter, Chapter 2 discusses evaluation of patients with psoriasis and recommended clinical approaches; Chapter 3 presents the etiology, differential diagnosis, clinical findings, and treatment of nail psoriasis; Chapter 4 updates the clinical knowledge on phototherapy for treating psoriatic lesions of the tongue; and Chapter 5 considers potential adverse skin reactions in psoriatic patients taking TNF alpha inhibitors.

Abstract

With about 10–20% of the adult population in Europe being tattooed, there is a strong demand for publications discussing the various issues related to tattooed skin and health. Until now, only a few scientific studies on tattooing have been published. This book discusses different aspects of the various medical risks associated with tattoos, such as allergic reactions from red tattoos, papulo-nodular reactions from black tattoos as well as technical and psycho-social complications, in addition to bacterial and viral infections. Further sections are dedicated to the composition of tattoo inks, and a case is made for the urgent introduction of national and international regulations. Distinguished authors, all specialists in their particular fields, have contributed to this publication which provides a comprehensive view of the health implications associated with tattooing.
