About this book

This book focuses on childhood psoriasis; it comprehensively discusses various concepts and topics related to this widespread auto-immune disease, including its pathogenesis, clinical aspects, the most recent and proven therapeutic approaches as well as the management of the psychological burden generated in younger patients. By highlighting the latest information on the pathogenic mechanisms, this unique book illustrates the great variety of clinical manifestations of this condition in pediatric patients, which are often very different from those in adults and later onset cases. It describes state-of-the-art therapeutic approaches and the advantages and limitations of latest treatment options available, and also presents all comorbidities of the disease in childhood, focusing on cardiovascular and metabolic disorders, as well as on the psychological impact of the disease in both children and adolescents.

Including over 200 original full-color illustrations, this book raises dermatologists’ and pediatricians’ awareness of this disease, which is increasingly being diagnosed during childhood. It also provides practical tools for best management. This clear, concise guide is intended for dermatologists, pediatricians, clinicians and researchers as well as residents in dermatology and pediatrics, but will appeal to all readers wanting to update their understanding of psoriasis in childhood.
