Overview

A 23-year-old African Caribbean woman presents in the emergency department with an acute onset facial rash. During initial assessment she complains of a two week history of general malaise, fatigue, fever, and weight loss. You have been assigned her examination...

100 Cases in Dermatology presents 100 scenarios with a dermatological manifestation commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors. A succinct summary of the patient's history, examination and initial investigations, including full colour images showing presentation, is followed by questions on the diagnosis and management of each case. The answer includes a detailed discussion on each topic, with further illustration where appropriate, providing an essential revision aid as well as a practical guide for students and junior doctors.

Making clinical decisions and choosing the best course of action is one of the most challenging and difficult parts of training to become a doctor. These cases will teach students and junior doctors to recognize important dermatological symptoms and signs and, where appropriate, their relationship to other medical conditions, and to develop their diagnostic and management skills.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Private Practice)
Description: As the title states, this book presents 100 clinical vignettes of various skin conditions along with laboratory studies, symptoms, and color photographs and asks readers to make a diagnosis based on the information presented, design a proposed treatment plan, and other pertinent questions regarding management. The next page gives answers with short discussions justifying the treatment rationale. Key points appear in lightly shaded orange boxes at the end of each case presentation.
Purpose: The purpose is to help medical students and residents become more adept at recognizing dermatological clues to various medical conditions. The material is presented in a fun and interesting fashion.
Audience: The audience is medical students and first year dermatology residents, along with medical residents in other fields.
Features: The authors have selected cases that are important to diagnose and treat for a variety of reasons: they can be potentially life-threatening and/or are common disorders that should be recognized by primary care physicians. The clinical photographs are of variable quality. Some appear to have been taken at a distance and details of the skin findings are not easy to see. The discussions focus on practical management and avoid being esoteric.
Assessment: This book would be helpful for first-year dermatology residents, interns, and medical students. You can learn some useful dermatology quickly by studying the photographs and get a current idea about treatments, pathophysiology, and presentation. The book would be an easy way to test your knowledge in preparation for taking the boards and identifying weak spots in your learning.
