ABSTRACT

Military Dermatology   [open pdf - 4MB]

This volume places military dermatology in its historical context and emphasizes the conditions that specialists and general medical officers in the field are likely to see (eg, friction blisters, macerated feet, superficial fungal infections). Owing to the military's new peacekeeping role, this volume also discusses diseases that are uncommon in the United States but prevalent worldwide in specific geographical locations (eg, cutaneous tuberculosis, mycobacterial infections). Chapter 5, Cutaneous Reactions to Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Warfare, is unique to a textbook of this type.
