This is a richly illustrated account of the clinical features and microscopic anatomy of acne, acne-like disorders, and rosacea. Since its last edition the text has been completely revised. All aspects of these diseases are covered succinctly in the text: physiology, pathology, bacteriology, and endocrinology. Special emphasis is placed on the histopathology of these disorders. The text is supplemented by selected references, and a richly illustrated portfolio of gross and histopathological pictures. There are many new chapters including one on the history of acne and rosacea. The book is designed for those physicians - dermatologists, general practitioners, pediatricians, gynecologists, pharmacologists and surgeons - who must identify and treat the many different forms of these diseases. The spectrum of pharmacological and physical methods of controlling acne, acne-like diseases, and rosacea are critically examined. The authors present in detail their personal strategies for successfully treating these distressing diseases
