5 Stars! from Doody
Howard Kurshenbaum
This third edition dermatology text discusses the most common skin conditions, highlighting their symptoms, clinical appearance, and pathology. The author's goal is to provide the dermatologist with a guide to the diagnosis and treatment of the most common skin conditions, in a concise format, a very important goal for today's busy clinician. He achieves this goal in this excellent brief book. It is written for the dermatologist. The author is a consultant dermatologist at the Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh and Queen Margaret Hospital, Dunfernline, and as such provides a unique international perspective to common skin disorders. As a brief, concise, easy to understand reference, it is also practical for primary care providers, residents, and medical students. The book begins with a brief review of the primary lesions of dermatology, the diagnostic approach to rashes, and the patient overall. Major diagnostic groups are then covered typically in four to five page chapters. For example, the psoriasis chapter includes an excellent clinical description, histology, subtypes, key associated facts, with ample excellent photos and a brief current bibliography. Treatment is covered well in the following chapter. Major diagnostic areas include eczema; rashes; acne; leg ulcers; skin infections; hair, scalp, and nail conditions; and pigmented lesions. Also, basic procedures and associated systemic conditions are succinctly covered. This book covers key dermatologic conditions in a thorough, yet to the point manner. Abundant use of high quality photographs, tables, and diagrams allows the reader to quickly capture key points of the skin conditions covered. Current knowledge with up-to-datereferences is evident throughout this book. For these reasons and more this brief introductory book is highly recommended for dermatology practitioners and those seeking dermatology knowledge.
