Hair is inextricably linked with an individual’s sense of worth, personal style and self-confidence. If this is overlooked by clinicians, patients presenting with hair disorders may feel undertreated and underappreciated. Fast Facts: Disorders of the Hair and Scalp is a practical resource that will help healthcare professionals diagnose a wide range of hair and scalp disorders (including different types of hair loss), perform further investigations and, where appropriate, provide treatment options. Highlights include:
This fully revised second edition of Fast Facts: Disorders of the Hair and Scalp is an ideal resource for primary care practitioners, practice nurses, trainee dermatologists and medical students wanting to provide the most appropriate therapeutic, cosmetic and supportive advice to their patients, and for trichologists and consultant dermatologists wanting to keep up to date and informed on the many hair and scalp disorders.
"... very easy to read and 'dip' into ... it describes the histological appearance of each condition, helping some of us mere mortals to interpret the often “foreign language” we receive on pathology reports ... it discusses evidence for effective treatments in each chapter, but, in addition, covers the therapies your patients may ask about which have uncertain/unproven benefits or even hazardous effects ... It is good value for money and will be a useful additoin to any GP or GPSI armoury of literature."

“... a must for GPs, dermatologists, clinical trichologists and trichology students. The photos and diagrams are first rate, and a lot of up-to-date information is given in a clear, concise delivery method.”
