Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This book will appeal to nondermatologists interested in honing their clinical physical examination skills. Skin manifestations associated with particular organ system disorders as well as underlying cutaneous clues to hereditary syndromes are discussed.
Purpose: The purpose is to enhance physicians' awareness of cutaneous manifestations of underlying systemic illnesses.
Audience: The audience is family practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, medical students, and beginning dermatology students.
Features: The book takes a relaxed approach to learning the dermatologic signs associated with underlying disease. There is a brief discussion of treatment for most diseases. Unique skin findings in sexual abuse, child abuse mimics, drug abuse, and anorexia nervosa are discussed in separate chapters. Tables throughout the book summarize causes of and treatments for various skin changes. The many color photographs vary in quality and not every entity is accompanied by a photograph. Including photographs of every entity discussed and improving the quality of some of the photographs would be helpful to novices who are unfamiliar with the clinical presentations. There are also color histology photographs for some of the entities.
Assessment: Overall, this is a helpful introductory dermatology book for sleuthing out underlying systemic diseases using skin findings.
