This volume covers all aspects of ultraviolet and visible light effects on the skin, from the basic science underlying the changes that normally occur on exposure to sunlight, through an examination of light-induced diseases such as chronic actinic dermatitis, solar urticaria and drug
photosensitivity, to the development of photodermatology in the future. New fields of basic and clinical research, including photoimmunology and photoageing, and modern advances in the techniques and applications of photochemotherapy are also fully discussed. To achieve this the editor has drawn on
the wide and varied expertise of an international team of highly respected scientific and clinical photobiologists to put together the most up-to-date and comprehensive publication yet available in this field.
