  • the effect of AD on the emotional development of patients
    Discussing the mounting prevalence of skin disease, as well as its social and economic impact, Atopic Dermatitis is a definitive and essential guide for dermatologists, allergists, immunologists, pharmaceutical and cosmetic chemists, internists, pediatricians, epidemiologists, and graduate and medical school students in these disciplines.
