Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: The seventh edition of this dermatology atlas follows the same format as its predecessors: beautiful color clinical photographs with succinct discussions of clinical presentation, diagnosis, laboratory evaluation, treatment. Helpful tables detail the differential diagnosis for similar clinical presentations and how to distinguish them. Excellent clinical tips appear throughout the book. Curiously, this edition is smaller than the previous one of four years ago by over a hundred pages, but I can't see where that has compromised the value of the book in any way.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an excellent color atlas for learning dermatology.
Audience: It is intended for medical students, dermatology residents, and all other medical professionals. This atlas is an all time favorite of mine. It is a wonderful way to learn and/or brush up on conditions you do not encounter every day but do not want to forget about.
Features: The latest edition adds a few new entities: Nocardia, erythrokeratodermia variabilis, and penicillinosis. There is a new photo of Lyme disease on the face. Entities that were previously categorized under miscellaneous now appear under their own category, e.g., neutrophilic dermatoses. The chapters on life-threatening dermatoses and severe drug reactions are examples of the valuable information it presents. The book lends itself to be a rapid resource to refresh one's memory.
Assessment: This is one of the best clinical atlases around, and it is portable. Most of the information in this edition appeared in the sixth edition, with a few minor updates.
