Renata Strumia, Editor  Springer, 2012


Book Description:
Eating disorders in males are a complex phenomenon. Eating disorders are less common in males than in females, occurring generally 10 times more frequently in women than in men. In spite of similar symptoms in men and women, men are less likely to be primarily diagnosed as suffering from an eating disorder and they risk to be under-diagnosed. This new and unique book reviews research on the epidemiology, clinical features, risk factors, weight and shape concerns, body dissatisfaction and a particular male anxiety on muscle mass on the topic of eating disorders in males.

Book Description

Stop, look, and learn with us as we gather information through the mirror called the skin. The skin has much to tell us about where to look for illness, how grave that illness may be, and what strategies for therapy might be most advantageous. The skin is also the organ most easily accessible for obtaining tissue for pathological examina¬tion, culture, and examination of debris. These tools will also be discussed and expanded upon. This book classifies the skin conditions from the standpoint of organ involved as well as specific disease. The text makes use of many illustrations and photographs
