Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: The pocket guide is intended for medical students and dermatology first year residents. It provides a thumbnail overview of practical tidbits one needs to know in dermatology. Dr. Lane has compiled and organized his notes as a student and thus the birth of this little paperback.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a basic overview of practical dermatology for clinicians.
Audience: The audience is medical students doing a dermatology rotation and first year dermatology residents.
Features: Medical, surgical, anatomical, and cosmetic information is included. Facts are summarized in tables. To get the most benefit, it would behoove the reader to peruse the entire book so one is familiar with the contents and has some idea of where to look and what the book contains.
Assessment: Side-effects and prescribing information for commonly used antifungals, toxicity levels of anesthetics, listing of common syndromes, etc., are available in a handy outline format in a reasonably priced book for the novice.
