Photodynamic therapy has surged in popularity over the past 20 years as a treatment for photodamaged skin cells, pilosebaceous disorders, nonmelanoma skin cancers and general facial rejuvenation. In Photodynamic Therapy in Dermatology—published by Springer and edited by Michael Gold, MD, Gold Skin Care Center and clinical assistant professor of dermatology at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee—Dr. Gold has assembled the world’s experts on PDT to concisely cover every indication for PDT, examine the different photosensitizers available around the world and provide information on how to integrate PDT into practice. The book is organized by disease category, with each chapter providing a systematic discussion of indications, PDT approaches from country to country, common side effects, and prognosis as well as the underlying science. The book will be of value to dermatologists seeking a state-of-the-art, global review of PDT; its latest clinical uses; and guidance on how to incorporate PDT into clinical practice. Photodynamic Therapy in Dermatology is available at amazon.com.
