4 Stars! from Doody
Larry Solomon
This book is volume 8 of a series devoted to advancesin dermatology as described by investigators in each of the fieldschosen to be explored. Each section is edited by a recognizableauthority in that particular segment of dermatology. The authors havetried to pull together a number of topics that may appeal to a broadsegment of dermatologists; thus, they include basic science, clinicaltherapeutics, laser surgery, pediatric dermatology, and dermatologicendocrinology. The book is modestly successful in its goals and issuited for dermatology residents and dermatologists. There is a smallnumber of the usual black-and-white illustrations, but the diagrams andtables found in the first half of the book are valuable. This book issimilar to the ""Recent Advances"" series by Champion and Pye. I preferthe British seriesbut both tend to have a spotty quality."" The bookis divided into several chapters, including those on autoimmuneblistering diseases, oral ulcers, molecular biology for thepractitioner, integrins, disease of nutrition, and dermal mucinosis.Those are all well written and thoroughly informative. Other chaptersdealing with management of systemic glucocorticoids, causes of irritantdermatitis, treatment of metastatic head and neck squamous canceroriginating in the skin, and management of hemangiomas are quitecontroversial. How can anyone write a chapter on hemangiomas withoutreference to Mulliken's magnificent text on the subject? Hebert'schapter on photoproreaction in children and Lucky's chapter on acne areboth current and excellent.
