Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This is a thoughtfully designed quick reference on general dermatology topics. It summarizes highlights of common disorders and includes numerous helpful differential diagnosis tables. Salient clinical findings pertinent to each diagnosis are listed as are the distinguishing features to be noted in differentiating among similar conditions. Conclusions regarding current pathogenesis and treatment are stated succinctly.
Purpose: The book is intended as a useful reference for general dermatologists and dermatology residents. If you only have a minute or two to read up on an entity, you will reach for this book frequently. The authors' objectives are fulfilled.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists, residents, medical students.
Features: The strength of this book lies in the differential diagnosis tables on the clinical findings of the different entities and subtleties of making the correct diagnosis, and the summaries of treatment options. The pregnancy chapter has a very complete and handy summary of common dermatologic drugs prescribed in pregnancy and their associated FDA risk category. An excellent table lists the antigen targeted by the different antibodies associated with vesiculobullous disorders. There are many color clinical photographs.
Assessment: The authors are to be commended for tackling the difficult problem of trying to condense all of dermatology into one quick reference. Virtually everyone will learn something from reading this book, regardless of level of knowledge. People preparing to take the boards or recertification exams should examine this book.
