Acne is one of the most commonly presenting skin diseases and, in the majority of cases, patients can be helped enormously. Successful treatment of this condition depends on the careful selection of the appropriate antiacne agent and management strategy to meet the needs of each individual patient. This can be a daunting prospect for the community physician and even the experienced dermatologist given the vast array of therapeutic options now available. Fast Facts: Acne is for those in the front line of patient care. It offers a distillation of all that is pertinent to successful diagnosis and therapeutic management and recognises that individual patients have individual needs. The book highlights the etiology of the disease and clinical presentations, reviews the abundance of available treatment options, their modes of action and potential adverse affects. It covers careful patient evaluation to ensure correct antiacne agent selection and ongoing treatment plan, develops patient compliance and confidence - essential for successful treatment, reviews the merits and roles of new and developing antiacne agents in improved patient care and summarizes key points at the end of each section; the facts lift easily from the page. Contents: Epidemiology; Etiology and pathophysiology; Psychosocial aspects; Clinical features of the various forms of acne; Topical therapy; Oral therapy; Physical treatments for acne and scarring; Designing an acne treatment plan; Future trends / areas of need.
