This book discusses the exciting potential for dermatology to embrace developments to enhance the profession's valuable pattern recognition, diagnostic, and treatment skills. Personalized medicine (PM) and genomics are easily accessible and enable the customization of healthcare using molecular analysis to influence medical decisions, practices, and therapies for the individual patient. The evolution of the skin, and the manner in which dermatological conditions are described and managed, reveals the need to consider many aspects on a personal level. New research data are based on the use of evolutionary medicine and genomics to highlight how we can become more successful at finding the most efficacious types of antibiotic or therapy and dosage for a particular disease or pathogen and build a competitive edge by prevention and risk management against invasive viruses, bacteria, or wrongly administered drugs. As more is understood about what grows on us and how it all interacts, along with how the introduction of new antibiotics, biologics, and other therapies affect our skin's ecological balance, this book aims to create a heightened sense of the importance and offerings of ecological dermatology.

The present work gives current data on all aspects of the medical problem, from aetiology and pathology to financial aspects, medico-legal implications, and current nursing practices. It reviews the knowledge and techniques currently available to the clinician and focuses on evidence-based knowledge for prevention, treatment and assessment of pressure ulcers. Specific patient groups include the Spinal Cord Injured. Current and future techniques are described that will provide information on the susceptibility of subjects to pressure ulcer development and the possibilities of tissue repair using tissue engineering strategies.

Skin disease is a serious long-term problem for the recipients of solid organ transplants. The potent systemic immunosuppression therapy necessary to sustain a life-saving solid organ transplant is associated with many adverse cutaneous effects, including significantly increased rates of cutaneous malignancies, difficult-to-treat cutaneous infections, and cutaneous adverse manifestations of multiple medications. This book is the first scholarly compilation of the knowledge base surrounding the care of solid organ transplant recipients with dermatologic diseases. Supplemented with dozens of full-color photographs, this work brings together decades of knowledge into a cohesive format and establishes transplant dermatology as an important subspecialty within the field of dermatology and transplant medicine. Skin Disease in Organ Transplantation is an outstanding resource for transplant providers and dermatologists to determine the optimal diagnostic and therapeutic approach to the difficult problems of cutaneous disease in organ transplant recipients.
