This book is a concise guide to superficial fungal infections on the skin for dermatologists and GPs.
Divided into two sections, the first part of the book discusses normal skin flora (microorganisms that reside on the skin, many of which are bacteria mostly found in the superficial layers of the skin and the upper parts of hair follicles).
The second section covers the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of superficial fungal infections.
The book serves as a quick reference guide for `on-the spot' diagnosis.
Clinical photographs, illustrations and tables further enhance the text.
