Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The unique presentationof the book remains, utlising the design of double page chapters. This makes the book very readable and also easy to dip in and out of when used for reference...The text is very up-to-date and includes insights into possible future developments...The target audience is medical students preparing for their MRCP and MRCGP exams and specialist nurses. There is much competition in this field, but this is one of the best available and I highly recommend it."

Dermatology in Practice, January 2013

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This is a good softcover primer for beginning dermatologists. It covers the basic principles of dermatology in a simple manner and briefly explains various diseases a practitioner is most likely to encounter. Color photographs accompany the text and cartoon type drawings illustrate pathology, arthropods, and the idea behind immunofluorescence for detecting abnormal antibodies in the skin.
Purpose: The purpose is to help beginning dermatology students enter the world of dermatology.
Audience: The audience is medical students on their dermatology rotation.
Features: Blue and yellow shaded tables compare similar disease entities and drug reactions. Each entity is discussed in a prescribed format: pathogenesis, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, and management.
Assessment: This is a reasonably priced book for medical students. The material is not overwhelming in the way it is presented and the majority of the common skin lesions and conditions are covered in an easy to understand format.
