This book comprehensively covers the knowledge and skills that physicians, medical students and mid-level providers (physician assistants and nurse practitioners) need in order to care for patients with plant or arthropod exposures. It presents the epidemiology, pathogenesis and clinical manifestations of selected exposures, before discussing prevention strategies and management options for adverse cutaneous reactions and selected systemic manifestations. Lastly, it reviews emerging viruses carried by arthropods and related human diseases, such as the Zika virus.  

Dermatological Manual of Outdoor Hazards covers a broad range of arthropod and plant exposures, with a specific focus on dermatological manifestations, making it a valuable resource for all trainees and practicing dermatologists, primary care physicians and emergency physicians who treat these patients.
