Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Renata H. Mullen, MD (Palo Alto Medical Foundation)
Description: This comprehensive review of all of the therapeutic options for moderate to severe psoriasis updates the second edition of six years ago. A unique structural element of this book is color-coded tables for easy reference.
Purpose: According to the authors, the purpose is to provide guidance on state-of-the-art clinical management of moderate to severe psoriasis, using the experiences of a group of experts well known in the psoriasis field. These worthy objectives are met, for the most part.
Audience: The book is written for any physician caring for patients with psoriasis. The authors target dermatologists, primary care physicians, residents, medical students, and other healthcare professionals as their primary audience. However, practicing dermatologists or dermatology residents will probably find this book most useful.
Features: The focus is primarily on the various therapies for psoriasis, including topical treatment, phototherapy, and systemic agents. The newer biologic agents are discussed in detail as well. The book further touches on special considerations in pediatric patients and patients with psoriatic arthritis. The last chapter looks to the future in discussing the role of pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics in the treatment of psoriasis. What is best about the book is that it is complete and comprehensive, yet quite concise. It will be a handy and often-used reference for any physician treating patients with psoriasis. The significant points in each chapter are highlighted in light-blue tables, which make it easy to skim through salient treatment points.
Assessment: I found this book extremely informative and at the same time, readable and well written. The update is necessary because of the many new therapies that have come into use over the past several years. I highly recommend this as a go-to reference for any physician treating psoriasis.
