Overview

This is the indispensable solution to those problematic eponyms, some of the hardest medical terminology for any healthcare professional to absorb and recall. Typically an eponym, such as Cronkite-Canada Syndrome, gives no indication of what the syndrome is or who the people behind it are. With this one reliable, efficient resource, a healthcare professional can obtain the complete meaning of more than 1,000 dermatologic eponyms and use them precisely every time. Other features of this book include capsule summaries of the eponymous terms, concise biographic information for each entry, black-and-white photographs, a useful 16-page insert of full-color clinical illustrations, and more.

    Overall Evaluation of the IDDE

    Exemplary work. It is well organized, easy to use, exhaustive, up-to-date and rigorously researched and cross-referenced. Because of its excellent cross referencing, it is also a fabulous launching pad for doing in-depth research. Furthermore, its appendix on acronyms and abbreviations is unparalleled. Note: This is an excerpt from the in-depth review I have written for the Dictionary Review Committee of the American Translators Association. For those interested, it will be published in the July 2005 issue of the ATA 'Chronicle' and will be accompanied by a brief interview with its main author, Benjamin Barankin, and by short biographical information of its three physician authors. Although in writing this review I have compared the IDDE to comprehensive general medical dictionaries and to other dermatology dictionaries such as Carter's (1992) 'A Dictionary of Dermatologic Terms' and to Goeltzenleuchter's (2002) 'Dorland's Dermatology Word Book,' in all fairness to these earlier and less focused dictionaries, and as a challenge to the newly-issued IDDE, I opted to make my strongest comparison primarily with online sources on medical eponyms. According to Dr. Barankin, the IDDE was three years in the making, and, in spite of it being a paper publication, the relevance and actuality of its content favorably compares to Internet databases (a number of them restricted) that are regularly updated. Now that Barankin, Metelitsa and Lin have done the work for us in compiling this unrestricted corpus of the hardest terminology in dermatology (eponyms and acronyms) between two covers for quick, comprehensive, and easy reference, conducting additional research in dermatology terminology has been simplified. For medical translators this book is not only informative, it is a time-saver.

    Excellent book

    A superb collection of dermatology eponyms. The book is well-researched and well-written; I highly recommend it to anyone involved in dermatology or dermatopathology.
