Atlas of Perianal Disease (eBook)





The Oxford Clinical Atlas of Perianal Disease provides a summary of the key diagnostic features of all perianal conditions likely to be encountered in clinical practice.

Perianal Conditions are common, and although they are rarely life-threatening they often cause disabling or chronically irritating symptoms. The diagnosis of perianal conditions can usually be made by a thorough history and examination and an understanding of the pathophysiology of the disease. accurate diagnosis is key to effective treatment.  The purpose of this book is to provide the key points of history and examination to allow almost a “spot diagnosis”.  With increasing experience, a more accurate diagnosis is possible, therefore increasing the effectiveness of the treatment.

The aim of the Oxford Clinical Atlas of Perianal Disease is to improve the accuracy of the diagnosis of perianal conditions in the primary health care setting, in general practice or the emergency department, and to thereby facilitate appropriate referral and management.

Intended Audience: This Atlas will be extremely valuable for Colorectal Surgeons, General Surgeons and Gasroenterologists who frequently deal with this pathology. The breadth of conditions covered will mean the book will have relevance to experienced clinicians, trainees and medical students alike. While anal pathology is common, it is often misdiagnosed by those who don’t specialise in the field, hence, this book will also be a valuable reference point for other more general clinicians who encounter anal pathology, including primary and secondary care physicians and their trainees
