Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This is a very good introductory dermatology textbook. The clinical approach is outlined in a clear and simple manner that makes sense and will be easily integrated into the novice's brain. The pathogenesis and differential diagnosis is well presented without being overwhelming or confusing. The clinical color photographs are representative of the diseases discussed. The previous edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate medical students about the principles of dermatology.
Audience: The audience is medical students and any healthcare professionals with no dermatology background who desire a good basic book.
Features: Light blue highlighted boxes emphasize key clinical points about specific dermatoses. How to perform a clinical exam in order to arrive at the correct possible diagnoses is well done. The diagrams illustrating the histologic changes are good. The authors deliberately avoid actual histologic photos in order to get the main points across. This is a good beginner's book to learning dermatology. Readers would actually be quite proficient in dermatology if they master the information.
Assessment: This is definitely a useful book and I would recommend it to anyone starting their dermatology clerkship. You will be completely lost if you don't read this book. You won't understand what anyone is talking about much less what you are seeing. This book demystifies the "secret world" of dermatology.
