"Should serve as a standard against which all future atlases will be measured."—New England Journal of Medicine, on a previous edition. This trusted, best selling color atlas presents a wide array of skin conditions, from the most common to life-threatening melanoma and HIV/AIDS. Retains its easy-to-use format that depicts each disease entity, then thoroughly describes the disorder with a brief overview: epidemiology and etiology; history; physical exam; differential diagnosis; laboratory findings; diagnosis; and management. Now features dozens of new and improved illustrations, current management strategies, an updated two-color design, and case reports where appropriate. Unsurpassed for its low price, extensive use of superb color illustrations, and ease of use by health care professionals at all levels.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathleen E Kramer, MD (Stanford University)
Description: This fourth edition is replete with photos of skin diseases ranging from the benign to the deadly. Text complements the photos, providing clinically useful information about etiology, diagnosis and treatment. This atlas, replacing the 1997 version, adds depth to the text as well as new photos.
Purpose: In dermatology, a picture really is worth a thousand words; often the best way to identify a skin disease is by comparing it to photos or diagrams. This atlas, with 680 photos, provides a field guide to visual recognition of skin disorders.
Audience: This book is aimed at healthcare professionals and would be useful in any primary care clinic, emergency room, or urgent care center. Medical students and residents on clinical rotations would also find this helpful.
Features: The atlas is divided into several sections, grouping disease entities by morphology, location, and etiology. Photos of most of these are presented. These photos are of high quality and generally demonstrate the important aspects of each condition very well. A short, succinct text accompanies each condition. This is expanded from the previous versions so that this atlas not only aids in visual recognition and diagnosis, but also gives valuable information about diagnostic considerations, treatment, systemic issues, etc. A section on how to describe lesions aids not only in diagnosis, but also in one's ability to discuss a condition with colleagues.
Assessment: This atlas is accessible and easy to use. The photos are excellent and numerous. This new edition improves on the past editions with new photos and text which make this book more valuable to any healthcare practitioner.
Archives of Dermatology
...the book's breadth, volume of information, and large number of high-quality photographs still make it an unbeatable value. (June 1997)
Annals of Internal Medicine excellent stand-alone atlas and management guide. (June 1997)
American Academy of Nurse Practitioners excellent resource for all health care providers functioning in primary care roles. (Review of 2nd Edition)
Steven H. Goldberg
This third edition (first edition 1983) serves as an excellent companion to the classic Dermatology in Internal Medicine (Fitzpatrick) and as a stand-alone dermatologic atlas and management guide. There are more than 1,000 pages providing succinct summaries of all the cutaneous disorders as well as more than 400 high-quality color photographs. Each individual synopsis lists the epidemiology, etiology, history, physical exam findings, variations, differential diagnosis, laboratory exam findings, pathophysiology, course, and management of the dermatologic disease. This book serves as a well-differentiated atlas and management guide for general dermatology. The target audience includes all primary care providers and students as well the dermatologist who wishes for a handbook for a quick overview of a skin disease. The book begins with a "how-to" approach to a patient with skin lesions and follows each disorder with this consistent format. The described diseases include the full range encountered in medical practice from both inflammatory to neoplastic conditions. All conditions are illustrated with large high-quality color photographs of classic dermatologic findings. It is very up-to-date with new sections on mucocutaneous manifestations of HIV, the most recent recommendations on the treatment of malignant melanoma, and the newer drugs recently approved by the FDA. It uniquely contains appendixes and indexes that encompass various approaches to the evaluation and management of special situations, from the differential diagnosis of the generalized itch without skin findings, to "the differential diagnosis of rashes in the acutely ill febrile patient. Thisoutstanding comprehensive general dermatologic textbook should be on the shelves of all primary care providers and dermatologists who require a quick refresher on any skin disease.
