Overview

Treatment of Skin Disease: Comprehensive Therapeutic Strategies has been thoroughly revised to give you the latest treatment options for dermatologic conditions. Mark G. Lebwohl, Warren R. Heymann, John Berth-Jones, and Ian Coulson present an intuitive and easy-to-use, definitive treatment reference that covers the full range of choices for each condition so that you are prepared even when your patients do not respond to primary or secondary therapies.

Offer your patients the full range of choices and be prepared when your patients do not respond to primary or secondary therapies.

• Offers guidance for even the most difficult clinical problems by including third and fourth line therapies, as well as standard treatments, so you have options to try when all else fails.
• Features a summary of each treatment strategy along with detailed discussions of treatment choices so that you can apply the in-depth knowledge of the authors and editors.
• Presents each chapter in a tabular format, with checklists of diagnostic and investigative pearls and color-coded boxed text, for quick at-a-glance summaries of key details.
• Includes a full-color clinical photograph of each disease to help you diagnose more effectively.

• Includes access to the full text, Gold Standard drug database, and all the images online—fully searchable—at expertconsult.com.
• Covers new and more commonly presenting disorders in 12 new chapters on today’s hot topics, such as methocillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, atypical nevi, autoimmune progesterone dermatitis, and more.
• Presents up-to-date evidence and the latest treatments to keep you on the cutting edge of practice.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: Outstanding and terrific are modest accolades for this dermatologic therapeutic reference. The current treatments for 245 diseases are discussed and the clinical supporting studies are cited for each treatment option. The authors have helpfully included on every page a legend for decoding the abbreviation key to the types of studies supporting each modality (double-blind control, versus anecdotal versus a given number of patients in the study). Treatment choices are listed as first, second, and third line therapies and the rationale and associated risks are reviewed.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide easy access to all pertinent treatment options for many skin, hair, and nail diseases that dermatologists commonly encounter in their patients. The book exceeds its objectives.
Audience: The audience is practicing dermatologists. It is a bit advanced for beginning dermatology residents, but third-year residents should definitely buy this book.
Features: There is a representative clinical photograph of each entity, with a brief overview of the disease including clinical presentations. Summaries of therapies are highlighted in colored boxes followed by citations of studies and a brief conclusion of the articles' findings. The strengths of the book are the depth of coverage and the incredible user-friendly format that presents a wealth of material. This edition includes an access code for an online version. Every dermatologist can benefit from owning this book. You really are doing yourself and your patients a disservice by not having this book readily available. It is invaluable for treating those conditions for which you have tried everything, letting you choose a more obscure treatment for a difficult to treat condition with the confidence that you are justified by clinical data.
Assessment: This is a must-have book and definitely among the top dermatology books published this year. I look forward to the next edition and applaud the authors for their superb efforts in educating us in a quickly changing field which makes dermatology fun and challenging. P.S. It's an unbelievable steal at 25 cents a page!
From the Publisher
***2010 BMA Book Awards - Highly Commended - Internal medicine category*** “One of the biggest advantages of this book is that it can be readily accessed in the clinic and the most important papers have been selected out for the reader. Particularly useful is the way in which each treatment is broken down into five levels of evidence for the treatment of that condition, from the gold standard of a doubleblind study to anecdotal case reports. Furthermore, the references are summarised, usually in a brief paragraph in the text itself. The treatments are broken down into first-, secondand third-line therapies.''Judges comments

"Occasionally a text really catches one’s eye, and so it was with Treatment of Skin Disease. This is a multi-author A to Z text covering approximately 260 dermatological conditions. It is well-illustrated with a high standard in terms of production values, and also provides online access to its content via the expert consult website.There is an excellent balance of conciseness versus comprehensive content." Treatment of Skin Disease. Comprehensive therapeutic strategies.

This is a must-have book and definitely among the top dermatology books published this year. I look forward to the next edition and applaud the authors for their superb efforts in educating us in a quickly changing field which makes dermatology fun and challenging. P.S. It's an unbelievable steal at 25 cents a page! Doody's Review - Weighted Numerical Score: 96 - 4 Stars!
