Following the familiar and easy-to-use at a Glance format, this brand new title provides a highly illustrated and accessible introduction to the structure and function of skin. It is the ideal guide for any medical student required to interview and examine patients, identify skin diseases, and develop a differential diagnosis and a treatment plan.

Each chapter covers the epidemiology and pathogenesis of the disease, as well as presentations likely to be encountered in both clinical practice and exams.

Dermatology at a Glance:

  • Is comprehensively illustrated throughout with over 300 high quality colour slides and photographs
  • Covers the key aspects of the British Association of Dermatologists core curriculum
  • Includes ‘Key points’ and ‘Warnings’
  • Features a self-assessment ‘picture quiz’ to help test learning and recognition, in preparation for dermatology tests
  • Includes a companion website at www.ataglanceseries.com/dermatology featuring self-assessment case studies, key point revision documents, and an image bank from the book.

The descriptive diagrams and photographs, coupled with clear explanations, will help all medical students and health professionals get to grips with the identification and treatment of all of the most common skin diseases.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Dermatology at a Glance does exactly what it sets out to do, and so is an ideal introductory textbook for students and others looking for a clear starting point from which to develop their dermatological knowledge.” (British Journal of Dermatology, 1 August 2013)

The book comes with a companion website, of which the best feature is access to a series of interactive case studies. These are all relevant clinical scenarios covering important presentations in dermatology, and are ideal both for checking understanding and as exam preparation. Also included is a section featuring online dermatology resources. Dermatology at a Glance does exactly what it sets out to do, and so is an ideal introductory textbook for students and others looking for a clear starting point from which to develop their dermatological knowledge. (S. Ainley & E. Burden-Teh, University of Nottingham, from the British Journal of Dermatology)
