Acne vulgaris is an extraordinarily common, worldwide dis ease. Some see the disorder as merely cosmetic. Nonetheless, few skin diseases cause as much physical and psychological misery as this scourge of adolescence. Dermatologists of course have more than a passing familiar ity with acne vulgaris. Recognition is easy but there is still an extraordinary amount of controversy concerning causa tive factors and the best modes of treatment. Recent studies have brought forth some important findings about which practicing physicians know too little. This volume" ACNE: MORPHOGENESIS AND TREAT MENT" is a surprising book. What features make it so unique? This is the first complete account of the great diver sity of clinical manifestations. Moreover, gross morphology is coordinated with a thorough microscopic analysis of evolu tion of the disease. The material is presented in a readable and stimulating way. References are limited because they have been carefully selected. The authors emphasize that this richly illustrated work is intended for physicians who care for acne patients. Accord ingly, this is above all a practical treatise to assist doctors to diagnose and treat acne, and not only acne vulgaris but all the species of acne. This work is an overview of the entire acne problem with contributions from bacteriology, endocrinology, physiology, anatomy, immunology, cellular kinetics, and experimental acne. Above all it concludes with an optimistic presentation of therapeutic strategies which make it possible for the in formed physician to control the abominable effects of this distressing disorder.

"Acne is a common ailment for teenagers but can persist well into middle age. Although the formation of comedones in hair follicles is quite well understood, the actual causes initiating the process are less well so. Many theories have been forwarded, from hormones through cleanliness to diet, none of which fully explain the condition. Indeed the variation in presentation and classification (there are three acnes) can make precise diagnosis troublesome. It is likely the causes are multifactorial, and evidence is accruing for all the above contributors.Many books have focused on the straightforward pathophysiological processes of hormones and cleanliness but have neglected the contribution of diet as a possible guide to prevention and other medical approaches to treatment. This book will take more catholic view, with a practical focus on all the possible modes of treatment based on current pathophysiological knowledge.The aim of the book is to assemble the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle so that the resultingpicture will be comprehensible to physicians and other caregivers, and identify what is known and what needs more investigation"--Provided by publisher.
