Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: Historical vignettes on the discoveries of well known skin diseases, their original descriptions, and their discoverers are the focus of this history book. History buffs like Dr. John Wolfe will love this book.
Purpose: Black-and-white drawings of the early dermatologists are including at the beginning of each story. A biographical sketch of each famous dermatologist is included. We learn about their family history, personal interests and how their brilliant perception led them to define new diseases.
Audience: The audience is history buffs and students of dermatology history.
Features: I particularly enjoyed the fine language used for diagnosing. It is like reading about a piece of art work. One had to be not only a good doctor, but a writer as well.
Assessment: It is interesting to read the precision with which these diseases were described. As the chapters progress to modern day dermatology, the descriptions are more involved with laboratory testing in the diagnosis. I am unaware of similar books.
