Pediatric Skin of Color is the first textbook devoted to the issues of pediatric skin of color. In 2052, more than fifty percent of the United States will be of color, and currently seventy percent of the world's population is termed of color. Therefore, this book fills the need for an instructional and educational referebce work regarding these populations.
Pediatric Skin of Color discusses the biology and clinical data regarding normal skin, skin conditions exclusive to individuals of color, systemic diseases of individuals of color that have a strong component of skin involvement, and the appearance and demographics of common skin diseases, comparing Caucasian and all skin of color populations.
Written for dermatologists and pediatric dermatologists, this text includes data on African American, Asian (Southeast and East), Hispanic/Latino, and Middle Eastern patients, as well as Indigenous populations (i.e. Native Americans, Aborigines).
