Offering broad coverage of the basic, clinical and curative aspects of photomedicine, this reference reflects the recent expansion of knowledge on the effects of light on normal skin as well as photosensitivity disorders and the use of light in treating various diseases and conditions. The book demonstrates how light acts as a therapeutic agent by means such as phototherapy, photochemotherapy, extracorporeal photopheresis, and the use of lasers in photomedicine and photodynamic therapy. Providing a detailed introduction to the subject, "Clinical Photomedicine": discusses the fundamental principles of photomedicine such as skin optics, light sources, and pharmacology; explicates the acute and chronic effects of light on normal skin, including sunburn reaction, photoaging, and skin cancer; considers photoimmunology; examines clinical photosensitivity diseases as well as topical and systemic photoprotection; and much more. With over 1300 literature citations, "Clinical Photomedicine" is designed as a resource for dermatologists and photobiologists, as well as residents and fellows in these disciplines.
