Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Renata H. Mullen, MD (Palo Alto Medical Foundation)
Description: As an atlas, this comprehensive review of all aspects of the dermatological care of pregnant patients has numerous high quality photographs, but the detailed text is helpful as well, with many useful tables.
Purpose: The author's aim is to provide an exhaustive book with a rich pictorial content encompassing all aspects of dermatology during gestation. These worthy objectives are admirably met.
Audience: It is intended for dermatologists, obstetricians/gynecologists, internists, family practitioners, residents, and patients. Any healthcare provider who cares for women during pregnancy would benefit from this book.
Features: The book covers every aspect of women's skin during pregnancy and the postpartum period. It begins with several chapters detailing the normal hormonal, physiological, and immunological changes during the gestational period. The next several chapters encompass preexisting skin diseases that may be affected by pregnancy. Disorders specific to gestation are covered next. Additional useful chapters at the end of the book discuss drug safety during pregnancy, skin care products, dermatological surgery, and ethics. Because it is comprehensive, this book truly can be a healthcare provider's single source of all aspects of skin care in pregnant patients. It is also very readable and concise. In addition to the excellent clinical photos, each chapter includes many useful tables, a summary of maternal and fetal risks, and a capsule of key points. I particularly found the differential diagnosis tables to be impressive; they do not simply state a long list of diagnoses, but rather state the pertinent ones and include key bullet points with differentiating features to aid in the diagnosis. The drug safety chapter is detailed enough to enable an informed decision for medication use during pregnancy.
Assessment: I absolutely love this book for its comprehensive approach, its user friendly design, and the fact that it can be my one resource to answer any questions when caring for pregnant patients. I highly recommend it as a welcome and much-needed addition to any clinician's library.
