Skin Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment, 3rd Edition, by Drs. Thomas P. Habif, James L. Campbell, Jr., M. Shane Chapman, James G. H. Dinulos, and Kathryn A. Zug, is the quick and practical clinical reference you need to help you effectively diagnose and treat 250 common dermatologic diseases. You’ll find succinct, user-friendly chapters arranged by disorder type, updated treatment plans, and hundreds of new images showing diseases in various stages of manifestation, including detailed information and illustrations on tropical dermatology. Perfect for any medical practitioner who’d rather treat than refer patients with skin disease, this full-color resource will also serve you well when prepping for the boards.
• Gain reliable, practical, and efficient guidance regarding the diagnoses and treatment of the most common 250 dermatologic disorders, along with clinical tips presented by the experts.
• Accurately identify skin conditions in children with discussions of how they manifest differently than in adults.
• Quickly access the answers you need with the dermatologic drug formulary, a "differential diagnosis by anatomical region and lesion" guide, and the disorders index.
• Prescribe effective dermatologic treatment based on the practical diagnostic advice of Dr. Habif and fellow contributors who offer anterior and posterior diagrams of where diseases may be found on the body, classification of primary, secondary, and special lesions, pediatric considerations, clinical pearls to guide decision making, and more.
• Get and give the most up-to-date therapeutic advice available as every section in the book is revised with current treatment plans.
• Be prepared for travel-related skin diseases with new, richly illustrated coverage on tropical dermatology.
• See how skin disorders present at different stages with hundreds of new and often never-before-published images.
Diagnose and treat more of the dermatology disease you see every day and refer less with the expert guidance of Dr. Habif
"This continues to be my all-time favorite, go-to book for a quick refresher on treatment and diagnostic tips as well as to confirm clinical findings by studying the gorgeous color photographs. This should be a mandatory purchase for medical students and dermatology residents. I recommend it be the first book you read on the subject. It provides an excellent basis for tackling the encyclopedic tomes on dermatology. Reading this is like falling in love again (with dermatology)!"

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center) Description: This is an excellent reference for first year dermatology residents, medical students, and primary care physicians who are looking for an easy to use and accurate source of information for treating dermatologic problems. The original edition was a hardbound book and the paperback edition has not sacrificed any quality and the price is a steal! All the routine skin disorders are covered in this book and there are excellent color photographs on just about every page. The authors have included photographs of a particular entity in different stages and manifestations, which is extremely helpful if you are a nondermatologist trying to make a diagnosis by looking at the pictures. Purpose: This book rivals Fitzpatrick's Color Atlas and Synopsis of Clinical Dermatology: Common and Serious Diseases, 4th Edition (McGraw-Hill, 2001). I find it difficult to make a choice between the two. There are succinct descriptions of the clinical presentation, a discussion of the expected natural course of the disease, differential diagnosis, and treatment. The strength of this book lies in the ease with which one can look up a disease quickly, read and understand the entity in about 2-3 minutes, and run back into the room and put the patient on a reasonable course of treatment. Audience: The authors do an excellent job of explaining without overwhelming the reader with long confusing dermatology terminology. Features: I cannot think of any shortcomings. I look forward to future editions. The discussion on the treatment of bullous pemphigoid did not mention methotrexate. Assessment: This is a definite buy for everyone who treats patients with skin diseases.
