Overview

Dermatological clinical skills, unlike the diagnostic skills in other branches of medicine, are generally neglected in medical schools and take a long time to master, even though skin problems comprise 20-30% of primary care visits. In Dermatology Skills for Primary Care: An Illustrated Guide, a widely experienced dermatologist (Dr. Trozak) and two family physicians (Drs. Tennenhouse and Russell) seek to correct this deficiency by teaching the basic diagnostic and therapeutic skills used by dermatologists and demonstrating their application in daily practice. Using extensive illustrations and an excellent library of color photographs, the authors provide an overview of basic skills and cover 33 common dermatological conditions encountered by primary care clinicians every day. Writing in a simple, logical style clearly understandable to the nondermatologist, they discuss the full range of dermatological disorders, such as dimple warts, rosacea, scabies, erythrasma, epidermal/dermal lesions, freckles, moles, malignant melanoma, common skin cancers, shingles, acne, and atopic dermatitis, among others.

Up to date and comprehensive, Dermatology Skills for Primary Care: An Illustrated Guide offers clinicians an authoritative and easy-to-use resource that will not only improve basic dermatological skills, but will also provide the broader foundation clinicians need when managing troubling skin disorders.
