Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"DDxDeck will be perfect for a short flight, train ride or a quick study between patients in clinic!"--US Dermatologist Robert A. Silverman, M.D.

"This is a fun way to test your knowledge of basic dermatology. For novices, it is a nice introduction to many dermatologic diseases before tackling one of the myriad of intimidating textbooks on dermatology."- Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center) Doody rating!

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This diagnostic deck of color photographs, an offshoot of Skin Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment, 3rd edition, by the same authors (Elsevier, 2011), is an entertaining way to brush up on your clinical diagnostic skills by looking at the color clinical photos of various skin conditions. One side of the bookmark-shaped card has four illustrations of typical presentations of an entity, with an accompanying clinical tidbit for each photo. The flip side has more detail on presentations and treatment. The facts are meaty and succinct.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a quick and painless way to learn or refresh one's clinical recognition and basic knowledge of main dermatological diseases.
Audience: General dermatologists and dermatology residents would find this diagnostic deck educational. I like to use it to educate my patients. When they ask what a basal cell carcinoma, psoriasis, etc., looks like, I show them the photos in the deck.
Features: The deck has helpful clues on clinical diagnosis and current treatment recommendations, and the information is very practical. The authors have made an effort to include only the most pertinent information that one would need to know in a clinical setting, not the esoterica needed to study for the dermatology boards. The one annoying thing is the construction of the flip deck. Mine is new, but after reading through it, the deck fell apart and hundreds of slippery, laminated cards separated. The two screws used to secure the cards are not long enough to hold this many in place, but I found a way to reattach the cards. Rather than use the long screw, which is not long enough for all of the cards, put the remainder of the cards on the shorter screw and then screw the two screws together. (It would be helpful if a screw driver was included.)
Assessment: This is a fun way to test your knowledge of basic dermatology. For novices, it is a nice introduction to many dermatologic diseases before tackling one of the myriad of intimidating textbooks on dermatology.
