Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This is a painless way to learn/brush up on your clinical diagnostic acumen in recognizing pediatric skin conditions. Excellent color photos of a myriad of pediatric dermatoses are displayed on bound laminated 2.5" x 9.75" flip cards. The back of each card has a brief description of the condition, prognosis, and treatment.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a practical and quick way to diagnostically confirm a rash you are seeing in the office with photographs of known conditions. It is also a way to test yourself on recognizing typical presentations of common pediatric rashes.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists, but pediatricians will find the flip cards useful as well.
Features: The diagnostic cards are organized according to the clinical appearance of the primary lesions to make it readily accessible to practicing clinicians. There are sections that address lesions appearing on specific body areas (mucosa, palms and soles, etc.) and arrangement of lesions. Each photograph is accompanied by an accurate, succinct, one-sentence description. It would be great to see a sequel flip card for advanced pediatric dermatologic diagnosis.
Assessment: This is a handy pictorial reference for dermatology residents, pediatricians, and dermatologists. The photographs are of excellent quality and can be used to compare and match what you are seeing in the office in order to arrive at a working diagnosis/reasonable differential diagnosis.
