Nail psoriasis is very common and causes considerable morbidity to patients. With the aid of informative illustrations, this book presents the clinical signs suggestive of nail psoriasis and describes the differential diagnosis of nail abnormalities. Newer methods of diagnosis are considered, and advice is provided on the use of severity evaluation indexes. The available treatments are extensively discussed, with information on the latest options. Selection of the appropriate treatment may be a challenge, so guidance is provided on all factors that should be taken into consideration and on choice of treatment for special categories of patient, such as children and pregnant women. Contributors have been selected from across the world, offering an international perspective on the condition. Nail Psoriasis will be an invaluable up-to-date source of information for dermatologists and will also be of interest to rheumatologists and general practitioners.
The opening up of Poland economically and politically to global influences after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, coupled with the rise of transnational approaches to the study of film, present ideal conditions for an examination of Polish cinema from a transnational vantage point. Yet not only have studies of Polish cinema remained largely within a national framework but Polish, and many other Eastern European cinemas, have also been virtually excluded from accounts of transnational cinema. Polish Cinema in a Transnational Context addresses this lacuna in film studies by examining the international reception of Polish films in Europe and North America, Polish international coproductions and the presence of Polish performers in foreign films, and the works of subversive emigre auteurs like Andrzej Zulawski and Walerian Borowczyk. Authors in this collection present familiar films and filmmakers in a new and revealing light, while also shifting the focus to lesser known filmmakers and aspects of Polish cinema. The resulting volume moves discussion beyond the border of Polish national belonging.
