With more than 900 color photographs, the new edition of this one-stop, turnkey reference picks up where the previous edition left off. Here is where you'll find a vast collection of images that provide invaluable guidance for the diagnosis of both common and rare skin disorders of neonates, infants, and children. For each condition reviewed in the text, one or more clinical photographs are supplied, making differential diagnosis faster, easier, and more efficient. Next, you'll find a concise, yet thorough overview of important clinical features, etiology, prognosis, and the most current therapeutic approaches.

Turn to any page, and you'll see the book's magnificent atlas format, with photographs linked to brief text that authoritatively describes the condition illustrated in each image, along with, in most cases, a one-sentence summary of suggested treatment protocols.

New to this Edition:

  • 230 colorful new diagnosis-speeding images
  • Up-to-date coverage of the cutaneous manifestations of new and emerging infectious diseases and biological/chemical weapons
  • Revised and refreshed legends throughout the text to highlight the latest thinking in pediatric dermatology practice
  • New treatment modalities that are included wherever applicable, reflecting the very latest clinical findings and treatment guidelines
  • And much more!

The book contains color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This is my kind of book! This pediatric atlas is chock full of excellent color photographs with 2 to 3 sentences of clinical description and/or therapeutic discussion. It does not need to be perused in any order. Just flip to a page and start looking and learning. This updates the last edition of nine years ago.
Purpose: The purpose is to aid physicians in diagnosing pediatric dermatological diseases by studying detailed color clinical photographs. The chapters are organized by etiology.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists, pediatricians, and residents in these specialties.
Features: There are many good clinical photographs of rare disorders, although some are too reddish orange, making it difficult to appreciate the texture and color changes described in the text. Interestingly, there are photographs of normal nevi. Most textbooks focus on depicting melanomas rather than giving one a feel for the variation in the appearance of normal nevi. New entities are included, such as neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis and acute hemorrhagic edema of infancy. Overall, the book is worthwhile for owning and reading.
Assessment: If you see children in your practice you will want to have this book on your office shelf. Overall, the color photographs are outstanding and the text is delightful. This book is a treasure.
Gary L. Darmstadt
Approximately 20 percent of patients who visit the pediatrician have a disorder involving the skin. The latest edition of this classic atlas of pediatric dermatology provides the practitioner with the images which will aid in reaching a bedside diagnosis of cutaneous diseases in the pediatric population. It is meant to be used in conjunction with a more comprehensive textbook of pediatric dermatology, since it provides only a brief discussion of the etiology and clinical appearance of many cutaneous conditions, spanning the common to the rare, in the young. The book is appropriate for healthcare practitioners of all disciplines who care for children, and is written by recognized authorities and leaders in the field of pediatric dermatology. The strength of this atlas is its large number of visual images. Each disease entity is illustrated by one or more photographs. A photomicrograph illustrating the histopathology is provided for a limited number of conditions. There are over 800 images, most of good quality, although some are out of focus. Accompanying the illustrations is a brief definition of the entity and description of the clinical presentation and prognosis. In some instances, mention is made of therapeutic options. There are no references, nor is the differential diagnosis entertained. The index is comprehensive, by disease category, entity, and anatomic location. This edition contains only a few new conditions and 76 additional illustrations not found in the previous edition published in 1990. This atlas is a useful educational tool for gaining an overview of the great variety of diseases which affect the skin of infants, children, and adolescents, and as such, will beparticularly useful for those practitioners for whom pediatric dermatology is unfamiliar. It also is an excellent resource for rapidly obtaining an overview of a known condition, and has an important place in health science libraries and primary care clinics. There are few changes, however, from the second edition.
