Baran and Dawber's Diseases of the Nails and their Management, 5th Edition
The human nail provides a complex structure that supports fine manipulation of objects while also protecting the extremities. Diseases of the nail disrupt this function. They can cause pain, discomfort and disfigurement, and may exert a profound effect upon patients' self-confidence due to their often unslightly appearance.
Baran & Dawber's Diseases of the Nails and their Management has long been recognized as the pre-eminent authority on nail disease. The 13 chapters that comprise this new edition encompass the scientific and clinical management of all abnormalities of the nails including: imaging of the nail unit; the nail in dermatologic disease; the nail in systemic disease; congenital and hereditary nail disorders; cosmetics and nail adornment, and surgery of the nail.
