Overview

The late Arthur Rook established the Textbook of Dermatology as the most comprehensive work of reference available to the dermatologist and it enjoys instant name recognition. Each subsequent edition has been expanded as the subject has developed and the book remains the ultimate source of clinical information for the trainee and practising dermatologist alike.

Rook's Textbook of Dermatology covers all aspects of skin disease from basic science through pathology and epidemiology to clinical practice. Long recognized for its unparalleled coverage of diagnosis, this clinical classic earned its reputation as a definitive source of information.

New features of this Seventh Edition include:


  • Two new Editors, Neil Cox and Christopher Griffiths, join the team
  • Every chapter is updated and several are completely rewritten from scratch
  • Completely new chapter on AIDS and the Skin
  • Traditional emphasis on diagnosis preserved
  • More coverage of treatment in each of the disease-specific chapters

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Renata H. Mullen, MD (Palo Alto Medical Foundation)
Description: This is the seventh edition of a comprehensive book covering the entire field of dermatology. Since it is in four volumes, it is very complete. The previous edition was published in 1998.
Purpose: According to the authors, the purpose is to provide a comprehensive reference guide to all dermatologic diseases. These are worthy objectives, which are, for the most part, met.
Audience: It is written primarily for practicing dermatologists or dermatology residents. It would also serve as a useful resource for internists or general practitioners who see patients with skin disease in their practice. The authors are credible authorities.
Features: The book covers the complete range of skin diseases and includes briefer sections on treatment modalities and dermatologic surgery. The complete coverage is the best attribute of the book; I was unable to come up with any disease or condition that was not covered. However, this is also one of the book's major shortcomings; the four volumes are huge and heavy! The emphasis on the clinical is a plus. The pathophysiology and current research of a disease is discussed, but the bulk of each chapter consists of detailed clinical information, complete with pertinent differential diagnoses and excellent clinical photos.
Assessment: This is a useful addition to the library of any dermatologist. Its greatest value is the inclusion of the entire range of dermatologic diseases and skin conditions. In this edition, every chapter has been updated and several have been completely rewritten, which justifies replacing the previous edition.
