Specialists and family physicians alike encounter dermatology-obstetric/gynecology conditions on a regular basis. Practical Guide to Obstetric and Gynecologic Dermatology bridges the gap between these two fields to offer expert guidance in diagnosis, treatment, and delivery of efficient, effective patient care. Covers all diseases, conditions, and issues associated with obstetric and gynecologic dermatology. Contains chapters on hyperpigmentation and melasma, connective tissue physiologic changes, pregnancy gingivitis, vulvar disorders, autoimmune conditions during pregnancy, herpes, rheumatic skin disease, and many more. Includes a selection of case files and progressive, high-quality photos of patients with various conditions to aid clinicians with differential diagnosis.
There are many changes in the skin, hair, and nails during and after pregnancy. Patients are certainly aware that those changes are occurring, but few physicians and even fewer patients know how to predict the course of those changes. Pigmentary changes occur, but are they permanent? Can they be prevented or reversed? Hair may become thicker during pregnancy, only to fall out in the postpartum period. When will hair stop falling out? Will it grow back? What hormonal changes are occurring to produce these effects on the skin, hair, and nails? Will those hormonal changes affect other organs? Some cutaneous manifestations of pregnancy are common and recognized by most physicians. Abdominal striae, for example, are easily identified, but physicians have many questions about them. Why do they develop? Can they be prevented or treated? Other cutaneous manifestations of pregnancy are less common and recognized by few. For example, pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy is a debilitating condition that is treatable once diagnosed. Even more important than the treatment, the knowledge imparted to a worried mother that her child will be fine and that the condition is se- limited is priceless; but the condition must first be recognized by the patient’s physician. All of these questions and conditions are addressed in this extraordinary book. Pigm- tary disorders are addressed in detail in Chap. 2.

Correct diagnosis in dermatology depends largely on the identification and interpretation of clinical signs. The book is written by an international team of dermatologists, obstetricians and gynecologists and is the only comprehensive obstetric and gynecologic dermatology atlas covering evaluation, diagnosis and management. The obstetric content includes skin diseases and manifestations of systemic disease, which have an effect on the reproductive system, and the impact of pregnancy on the skin. Normal physiologic changes in the skin in pregnancy are also covered, along with the effects of vulvar viral disease and connective tissue disease on pregnancy. The second half of the book is devoted to discussing the many facets of vulvar dermatoses. The many updates and changes make the book accessible for the non-dermatologist reader.

Vulval diseases are managed by dermatologists and by ObGyns and while expert referral centres do exist, the majority of patients are treated by non-specialists. These conditions are relatively common (approximately 15% of a gynaecologist’s caseload) and can be difficult to diagnose. Gynecologic Dermatology is a practical, highly illustrated guide written with the needs of the general dermatologist or gynaecologist in mind. The book begins with chapters on normal anatomy; history taking and examination of the vulva; biopsy taking and general management options. Next, symptom-based chapters describe presenting problems such as pruritus, broken skin and scarring, using flowcharts to help the physician work through to a diagnosis. Finally, chapters devoted to key conditions (lichen sclerosus, lichen planus, etc) describe the pathogenesis, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis and management of the disease in question. Abundantly illustrated and written in a practical, clinically oriented style, Gynecologic Dermatology is an indispensable reference for non-specialists that bridges the gap between dermatology and gynaecology. Symptom-based section reflects how patients present in real life and provides algorithms/flowcharts to help with diagnosis Includes second-line treatment options to help physician when standard treatment is unsuccessful Lavishly illustrated with over 500 photos, diagrams, tables and boxes
