We are pleased to present this book entitled “Clinical and Pathological Aspects of Skin Diseases in Endocrine, Metabolic, Nutritional, and Deposition Disease” as a labor of love. Dr. Rongioletti has been studying, diagnosing, treating, and researching cutaneous mucinoses and deposition disorders for years and this work represents his dream of consolidating his amassed experiences into a concise atlas and text for the practicing dermatologist, pathologist, dermatopathologist, endocrinologist, and internist. Dr. Smoller has also been actively interested in cutaneous pathology as a window for systemic diseases and has written extensively on this topic. These editors have assembled a distinguished group of scholars to share their collective expertise regarding these entities. It is the hope of the authors that each chapter will provide insights into the clinical appearance and course of the diseases presented, followed by a review of pathogenesis for each disease, and a close inspection of histopathologic changes and any accompanying special studies that might be required to establish a diagnosis. Subsequent discussions address therapeutic options. For each chapter, key points are highlighted with bullet points to summarize the major features. Clinical photographs and photomicrographs have been included as rapid references for the busy clinician or as study aids for the student of most of the discussed cutaneous diseases.
Although we have tried to minimize repetition, some duplication of some diseases is present among the various chapters and reflects the overlapping features of the endocrine and metabolic pathways, in addition to the different perspectives on a disease process. Sometimes, repetition is the mother of the studies (in Latin repetita iuvant).
Dr. Smoller would like to take this opportunity to thank each of the authors who have contributed so generously their time and efforts in completing this project. He would also like to thank profusely his many students and colleagues who provide him with the continued inspiration to continue with his writings. He would also like to extend a work of public thanks to his coeditor, Franco, whose generous offer and hard work made this project a reality. Mostly, he would like to thank his loving wife of 30 years, without whom none of this work would be worth doing.
Dr. Rongioletti would like to thank his coeditor, Bruce, for his dedication and efforts in making this project possible, all the contributors for their expertise, hard work, and commitment, all the colleagues and friends for their encouragement, Richard A. Hruska, Editor, Clinical Medicine at Springer for his support, and his loving ladies, his mother and his perpetual fiancée, for their patience and sweetness. If a doctor in any part of the world makes a correct diagnosis after looking at a picture or treats a single patient in a proper way after reading a chapter or just a few lines of this book, our efforts will not have been in vain.
