Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This little paperback book will be a nice introductory reference for medical students starting their dermatology rotation. It is chocked full of good clinical pictures of common dermatoses and an accompanying brief description of the entity and treatments.
Purpose: The purpose is to give a few pertinent facts about skin disorders to the novice starting to study dermatology.
Audience: The audience is medical students and medical supporting staff in a dermatology setting.
Features: Topics are grouped under simple categories: neoplasms, infection, etc., so that one does not need to be familiar with dermatological jargon and classifications in order to look up a rash. There is a nice succinct discussion on the structure of the basement membrane and a handy table summarizing how to do a gram stain. Some of the photographs are a little blurry or too far away to see detail.
Assessment: The book is very well suited for someone with no prior dermatology knowledge. This is a good beginner book and a good value for the price.

    I bought this wonderful book a month ago.It has a beautiful cover which attracted me most ! It is a small,cute,precise dermatology book in which the author has discussed all the dermatological disorders.It has beautiful pictures,illustrations and a very practical too the point text. It is an excellent book for undergraduate students who only need a basic idea of dermatology and for USMLE step I & II students. I recommend this book to all dermatologist and physicians!
