Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This is meant to be used as a quick guide to various genodermatoses with an emphasis on the clinical presentation. Body drawings indicating the various organ and skin areas involved are on one page with a color clinical photographs (which vary in quality). This does help you visualize the syndrome more completely rather than merely reading a list of abnormalities.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an accessible reference for the presentation, workup, and differential diagnosis for various genodermatoses. You do need to be able to come close to making the correct diagnosis to use the book effectively.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists. Medical students and residents may find this useful to study for the certifying exams.
Features: I liked the clinical pearls the best, which were shared by seasoned experts in the field. The management outline for the entities was also good, recommending specialists that patients should see, and cautioning about potential malignancies that may be associated with the syndrome. The appendix contains a thorough list of genetic laboratories and support groups.
Assessment: This book is easier to read than other books reviewing genodermatoses. It does not delve into the intricacies of genetic mutations that cause these entities, which is fine. The book is clearly written with the clinician in mind.
