The hormonal, immunologic, and vascular changes during pregnancy also affect the skin. In fact, some dermatoses only appear during pregnancy or the postpartum period. In order to apply the most appropriate treatment and reach the best possible treatment outcome, it is important to recognize these conditions at an early stage. This unique and comprehensive book is an up-to-date guide for all those treating pregnant patients. Lavishly illustrated, it covers both common and rare pregnancy-related dermatoses, and includes: clinical pictures, laboratory tests, histopathology, differential diagnosis, influence on mother and embryo, and treatment and prognosis. Each chapter ends with at least one representative case-report. This user-friendly, uniformly structured guide will help physicians confidently approach and successfully treat patients with pregnancy-related skin disease.
