Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Highly Commended at the BMA Medical Book Awards 2014

“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)
