Common skin diseases in Africa : an illustrated guide
This updated, photo-illustrated guide, which covers Southern, East and West Africa, provides a quick and easy reference for diagnosis and management of common skin diseases, including leprosy. Skin disease is often overlooked as a trivial condition but when care is taken to make the proper diagnosis and institute the proper treatment, the management of skin diseases often results in great improvement and satisfaction for the patient and health care work alike. Required treatments need not be expensive and are available locally. In many cases skin disease can be an indicator of other problems, particularly if influenced by concommitant HIV infection.
