Reviewer: Ann McGowan-Tuskes, MD, MS, BS (Kaiser Permanente)
Description: This is an easy to use alphabetical reference for cutaneous drug reactions to commonly used prescription and non-prescription medications. The author has been collecting data for years from many sources in the United States and Europe, and continually updates material for this yearly compendium.
Purpose: The author's objective to describe and catalogue adverse cutaneous side effects of drugs is a great contribution to practicing physicians in their need for speedy, accurate diagnosis.
Audience: Although it is written for practicing dermatologists and primary care practitioners, it can be easily used by students and residents.
Features: Most of the book is an alphabetical list of generic medications with their specific cutaneous drug reactions and associated references. There are approximately 19,000 references, mostly in English. It also contains excellent pictures illustrating many of the specific drug reactions, and shows variable presentations for some of them. In addition to a listing of generic drugs, there is an extensive list of proprietary drug names. The author has one section that accurately describes 25 common reaction patterns, and another that lists 76 reaction patterns with the drugs responsible for them.
Assessment: This is a must-have book for the busy practicing physician who must evaluate cutaneous drug reactions. This excellent reference book of cutaneous reactions to commonly used prescription and non-prescription drugs is well organized, easy to use, and updated with numerous references.
