Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This is a good book for cramming last minute facts into your brain when preparing for the certifying dermatology board exam. Lots of mnemonics, handy tables of differential diagnoses, lists of genodermatoses and their gene defects, infections and a summary of their clinical presentations, laser wavelengths and their respective pigment targets, the porphyrias and their enzyme defects etc. are summarized.
Purpose: The purpose is to boil down the minimum facts for medical, pharmacological, and surgical aspects of dermatology.
Audience: The audience is dermatology residents and medical students and medical residents doing their dermatology rotation.
Features: The format makes the book fun to skim. It is written as notes one might take in a lecture to study from later. The authors are definitely preparing you for the boards. I can recall being asked almost all the material summarized in this little paperback book. It is a very good study manual. You will have to have read and learned the more detailed comprehensive books on the material to appreciate the information.
Assessment: This is a good study aid to have in preparing for the dermatology boards.
