A clear and straightforward introduction to light related skin diseases - including the use of lasers, covering their investigation, diagnosis and management. Each light sensitive disorder and each type of phototherapy is underpinned with the principles of the underlying photophysics, chemistry and biology. Medical and nursing staff and technicians will find valuable insights combined with an ease of understanding that will give them a good working overview of the light related areas of dermatology.


Photodermatology, the study of the biological effects of ultraviolet and visible light on the skin, has, as an area ofknowledge, expanded rapidly over the past 20 years.Following introductory chapters on elementary photobiology and photophysics, equipment, and photoprotection, this bookfocuses on the clinical presentation, investigation, and discussion of treatment options for various photodermatoses (lightsensitiveskin disorders), along with a discussion of the rapidly evolving subject of cutaneous laser surgery. Doctorsand nurses have an important role to play not only in the diagnosis of the photodermatoses, but also in the administrationof phototherapies. More recent additions under the umbrella of photodermatology include laser and photodynamic therapy.This book provides an introduction into these various areas. It is intended to whet your appetite and to stimulate furtherinterest in these areas. While this book is primarily photographic in content, a significant amount of standardizedtext has been included to provide an up-to-date view of what is a rapidly changing subject.James Ferguson and Jeffrey S Dover
