A lavishly illustrated guide to almost 200 inherited diseases of the skin, hair, and nails. Each entry includes synonyms, age of onset, clinical findings, complications, course, laboratory findings, diagnosis, therapy, and key references, adding up to far more than just a collection of photographs. In addition to being a clinical primer, this is also a work of scientific research and contains the first printed description of two new syndromes. The fast-moving world of genetic research means that the latest genetic correlations, included here, render previous texts out of date. All specialists in Dermatology and Pediatrics should find this an invaluable front-line resource in the clinic.

During the past years, our knowledge on genodermatoses has undergone dramatic changes. In the light of the present molecular research, the vehement discussions regarding nosological categories that prevailed in the past century are now coming to an end, and new avenues of thinking have been opened.Classically, the term genodermatoses is applied to the relatively rare single gene disorders.Genodermatoses may affect epidermal, dermal or specialized structures.Skin & oral cavity are akin to each other in several attributes; both are made up of stratified squamous cells, are keratinized & have ectodermal origin; hence frequently genodermatoses demonstrate oral involvement & in several conditions, the oral presentation is distinct, giving first inkling of an underlying genetic skin disorder

Diagnosing a genetic skin disease can sometimes be a difficult task for a dermatologist. This is especially true for genodermatoses─generally considered rare diseases seldom seen by practicing clinicians. As a result, professionals often have little experience with their diagnosis. The Atlas of Genodermatoses presents a unique collection of such cases gathered patiently over the course of the years by the authors. It provides an unsurpassed overview of the major genodermatoses encountered in practice, even if only on rare occasions. This book discusses almost 200 inherited diseases of the skin, hair, and nails. The entry for each disease includes its epidemiology, laboratory findings, genetics, pathogenesis, cutaneous and extracutaneous findings, differential diagnosis, disease course, complications, and follow-up and therapy, where appropriate. In addition to being a clinical primer, this atlas is also a work of scientific research. The new edition rewrites the classification of some diseases, adds some newly described conditions, and updates established information with the latest molecular genetic studies and references. Specialists in both dermatology and pediatrics should find the atlas an invaluable frontline resource in the clinic.

The molecular basis of genetic conditions with cutaneous involvement, known as genodermatoses, is being discovered in increasing numbers due to the development of new genomic technologies. Dermatologists have therefore become vital in diagnosing these genetic conditions, specifically through molecular testing...This study aims to explore dermatologists' use of genetic testing, their experiences in seeking insurance coverage for it, and their utilization of the services provided by genetics professionals.

Skin Tissue Models provides a translational link for biomedical researchers on the interdisciplinary approaches to skin regeneration. As the skin is the largest organ in the body, engineered substitutes have critical medical application to patients with disease and injury – from burn wounds and surgical scars, to vitiligo, psoriasis and even plastic surgery. This volume offers readers preliminary description of the normal structure and function of mammalian skin, exposure to clinical problems and disease, coverage of potential therapeutic molecules and testing, skin substitutes, models as study platforms of skin biology and emerging technologies. The editors have created a table of contents which frames the relevance of skin tissue models for researchers as platforms to study skin biology and therapeutic approaches for different skin diseases, for clinicians as tissue substitutes, and for cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries as alternative test substrates that can replace animal models. Offers descriptions of the normal structure/function of mammalian skin, exposure to clinical problems, and more Presents coverage of skin diseases (cancer, genodermatoses, vitiligo and psoriasis) that extends to clinical requirements and skin diseases in vitro models Addresses legal requirements and ethical concerns in drugs and cosmetics in vitro testing Edited and authored by internationally renowned group of researchers, presenting the broadest coverage possible
