From the Publisher

"This book is convenient, portable, and well-organized, making it useful as a quick refresher." - Patricia Wong, MD, Stanford University Medical Center, on behalf of Doody's Review
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Private Practice)
Description: This is a handy portable reference on current treatments for various skin diseases with very nice color clinical illustrations. The previous edition was published in 2007, and an updated version was definitely in order.
Purpose: It is designed to be a useful treatment reference for dermatologists.
Audience: The audience is clinical dermatologists.
Features: A brief discussion of the pathophysiology followed by a description of the clinical presentation of a disease is the format for each chapter. The treatment section succinctly discusses the mechanism of action and rationale for choosing a particular treatment/treatment combination. This book contains 90 percent of the knowledge dermatologists need to appropriately treat most skin conditions. The explanations are well written and the treatments are numerically listed. I was surprised to see even sections devoted to dermatofibromas and calluses.
Assessment: My favorite reference for therapy is Treatment of Skin Disease, 4th edition, Lebwohl et al. (Elsevier, 2014), However, this book is convenient, portable, and well-organized, making it useful as a quick refresher. I use both of them frequently.
