Intended for trainee and practising dermatologists, physicians and podiatrists, this book illustrates over 400 common and uncommon appearances of nail conditions, collected over 30 years of practice in general medicine. Incorporating revision of text and new references, this serves as a handy reference to diagnosis. The book relates nail appearances to the general physical condition of the patient and explains their significance, highlighting signs of systemic disease. Line drawings illustrate the anatomy and topography of the nail. Features new to this edition include: a section on nail changes in diabetes; a section on appearances in the premature baby and neonate; a comprehensive survey of psoriasis and the nails; expanded coverage on feet for podiatrists; and coverage of the effects of HIV/AIDS.
