Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This is a superb collection of clinical photographs accompanied by outstanding descriptions of presentation and associated systemic diseases. It reminds me of the best of Du Vivier (Atlas of Clinical Dermatology, 3rd Edition (Elsevier Science, 2002)) and clinical pearls from Fitzpatrick (Color Atlas and Synopsis of Clinical Dermatology: Common and Serious Diseases, 4th Edition (McGraw-Hill, 2001)). High quality glossy nonglare paper does justice to the excellently detailed color illustrations, which are grouped four on each page. This second edition updates the original, published in 1995.
Purpose: The purpose is to illustrate the various skin findings associated with systemic illnesses. The chapters are organized according to organ system involvement. Excellent tables for work-up and interpretation of laboratory tests are provided. The author shares useful acronyms to aid one in remembering diagnostic possibilities and symptom complexes.
Audience: The book will be extremely useful to all dermatologists and students of dermatology.
Features: Each chapter begins with an interesting historical vignette and photograph. All the photographs are beautifully shot. There are no blurry slide reproductions here. The text is clinically oriented and full of valuable information regarding evaluation and diagnosis. This is a definite must have.
Assessment: The color atlas rivals Du Vivier's, Fitzpatrick's, and Habif's (Clinical Dermatology: A Color Guide to Diagnosis and Therapy, 4th Edition (Elsevier Science, 2004)) color atlases. The author has taken great pains to provide not only outstanding clinical photographs but also equally brilliant text for the illustrations.
Bruce E. Johnson
The book uses photos and text to illuminate the dermatologic consequences of systemic illnesses. The author hopes the book will enable clinicians to recognize the dermatologic signs of systemic diseases. The author states that there are no ""widely promoted"" atlases with this focus. These are fine objectives addressed by the author. Practitioners of general medicine, subspecialists in internal medicine, and dermatologists would find this atlas useful. The author is a professor of dermatology at a medical school in New York. The photos are excellent and appropriately illustrate the chosen topics. There are no references of consequence. The table of contents and index are adequate. The book is attractive and well laid out. The accompanying text is well written and thorough enough. Classic images that introduce each chapter are a nice touch. This atlas seeks to cross the line between dermatology and internal medicine by focusing on skin manifestations of systemic disease. The majority of the conditions described are in internal medicine. The photos are excellent and of the highest quality. Although the text overall is precise and appropriate, the inclusion of mnemonics seems unnecessary. A criticism may be directed at the choice of photos -- in many cases these represented end-stage examples and often were, in a word, gross. Most physicians would like to think they can detect, diagnose, and treat diseases before reaching the stages chosen to illustrate many of the discussions; of more value, perhaps, would have been to focus on earlier, more subtle skin findings.
Booknews
Covers exclusively and comprehensively the cutaneous manifestation of systemic diseases. High quality color photographs illustrate the symptoms, and the substantial text describe details and considerations, and in many cases adds mnemonics to help keep readers from forgetting important factors. Student and practicing internists and dermatologists are the principle readership intended, but other specialists might find important information in individual chapters, which include rheumatological. gastrointestinal, infections, and neoplastic diseases. No bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
