Overview

Because dermatology is a complex visual specialty that mixes medical and surgical approaches to management, trainees need fast access to a wide range of material. This concise new reference uses tables, algorithms, protocols, guidelines, and staging and scoring systems to present succinct guidance on best-practice patient care. Structured around three components — medical, surgical, and pharmacological — the book consolidates the core Board exam information residents most often look up. Handbook of Dermatology: A Practical Manual  was road-tested as it was developed to ensure usefulness for dermatology residents, dermatologists, and family physicians.
