This title provides an evidence-based approach to third- and fourth-line dermatologic therapies as well as to standard approaches. Although common diseases, such as psoriasis and eczema are covered, the book emphasizes therapeutically difficult diseases. It is organized by disease and briefly reviews diagnostic criteria before covering the first-, second-, third-, and fourth-line therapies. Within each therapeutic level, the therapies are ranked by efficacy and supporting evidence. This is an innovative book that combines evidence-based medicine with an easily accessible format.

"Without doubt this is an excellent book and the reader is encouraged to dip in and read around a topic and enhance their knowledge. It is also a super reference book, particulary when wanting more information about dermatological therapeutics - an area that is often neglected".
