Description

Psychodermatologic disorders comprise for up to one third of dermatologic conditions in different clinical settings. By virtue of their complex nature these disorders can be very difficult to treat and adversely impact long term outcomes. This book examines the bidirectional relationship between psychiatry and dermatology in children and adolescents. The information is represented in an easy to follow format to be used as a clinical reference by physicians and paramedical staff in various fields of medicine including pediatrics, primary care, internal medicine, psychiatry and dermatology.
