Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: I can recall a medical student colleague who had copied "all of the important information" from Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine onto a 3"x5" index card in preparation for our upcoming exam. He offered to make me a copy, but the writing was so tiny it was worthless to me. Because of that experience, it was with some trepidation that I picked up this small book that claimed to cover all the major dermatologic diseases. The table of contents is impressive. All topics in medical dermatology are covered from structure and function of the skin to immunology and the multitude of diseases. There is no out of date information that I could identify. The color photographs and clinical diagrams summarizing disease pathophysiology, immunological mechanisms, and clinical findings are excellent. Color tables, diagrams outlining mechanisms of action of medications, and photos of skin manifestations appear on one full page opposite the concise and clear text.
Purpose: It is intended to be an accessible, comprehensive little reference on dermatologic diseases, current treatments, clinical presentations, and quick tips on what to pay particular attention to and potential mistakes to avoid for specific entities.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists. This is not a beginner's introductory book. It is intended for educated dermatologists who need to look up a few salient points on a particular disease or want to confirm or brush up on current thinking.
Features: Diseases are concisely described in a few sentences. Dysfunctional immunological mechanisms are simply explained and there are very good summaries of how the various cytokines contribute to inflammation in diseases such as psoriasis, an easy way to classify lymphomas from a clinical viewpoint (this makes it more memorable and intuitive), as well as the mechanism of action of biologics. I could go on and on, but the point is everything is presented logically, methodically, and systematically. Since most of the authors are German, there is even a discussion of fumaric acid usage (not available in the U.S.). However, many of us see patients who have received treatment in Europe, so it is important to be somewhat knowledgeable about this medication. I haven't read about its use in any other book.
Assessment: If you can master all the information contained in this book you have reached the 5-star level. Do not be deceived by the size of the book; not one word is wasted and every sentence is educational. Think of it as an excellent condensed version of the more authoritative, but extremely hefty two volumes of Fitzpatrick's Dermatology in General Medicine, 8th edition, Goldsmith et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2012), or the weighty Dermatology, 3rd edition, Bolognia et al. (Elsevier, 2012). This is a gem and a terrific bargain for the price. I know I will reach for this book first for a quick brush up and then proceed to one of the 40-pound wrist-breaking tomes if I need more information.
