The skin is the largest organ of the human body. Skin diseases are very common, they can be of different causes or due to some internal problem of the organism. Doctors who treat the skin are dermatologists and are specialized in both curative and aesthetic aspects. In addition, the skin is an exposed and visible organ, so many patients rush to treat conditions that may arise. Our collection of dermatology books in PDF format covers all these aspects and much more interesting information.
Dermatology formally emerged just over 100 years ago, when it became known as one of many medical specialties in the late 19th century. Although interest in skin ailments and their research had been recorded much earlier, both in Rome and Ancient Greece. Diseases such as herpes, scabies or leprosy were already known. You can learn more about this subject in our selection of books on dermatology.
Dermatology is defined as the medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis, cure and treatment of skin diseases, as well as their aesthetic aspect. In this sense, the subspecialty called cosmetic dermatology was developed. The physicians in charge of this discipline of medicine are known as dermatologists. They must graduate as physicians and then specialize in dermatology.
Some of the skin pathologies treated in this specialty are: dermatitis, hives, leprosy, cold sores, vitiligo, acne, melanoma (skin cancer), among others. These are very uncomfortable not only because of the symptoms they may present, but also because they affect the patient’s appearance, influencing the patient’s self-esteem.
