 Manual of Dermatology in Chinese Medicine (View larger image)

Dermatology is a field for which traditional Chinese medicine is rightly respected. Proficiency in this field, however, requires specialised knowledge that is neither taught at most schools in the West, nor readily accessible to English-speaking practitioners.This manual provides the practitioner with information needed to properly treat skin diseases. Introductory chapters discuss the history of dermatology in traditional Chinese medicine, and aspects of diagnostics, differentiation and treatment peculiar to this field. The remaining 17 chapters provide detailed discussion of the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of specific skin conditions, including those most commonly seen in the clinic. Skin diseases are organised by biomedical categories, enabling practitioners to easily cross reference available colour atlases of dermatology.
