Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: Finally someone has put together a textbook of therapeutic treatment options for skin diseases! And it's a great book! Skin diseases are listed alphabetically and current treatments are discussed by a different author (or authors). All treatment modalities with published data are mentioned and the citations are included and briefly discussed. The therapies are ranked according to what are the most common approaches and finally third line therapies, which may be necessary when the more conventional treatments have failed or not been tolerated.
Purpose: The purpose of the book is to provide a summary of treatments that is quickly referenced and available to clinicians. I definitely would recommend this book to all clinical dermatologists. I like it better than the Shelley's Advanced Dermatologic Therapy II (W.B. Saunders , 2001) because the therapies are not so anecdotal and "way out."
Audience: The book is for clinical dermatologists. The authors are credible authorities on the subject matter.
Features: Excellent photographs of each entity are included at the top of the page of each discussion. Each therapeutic recommendation is rated as to the evidence-based literature.
Assessment: This book should be a part of every dermatologist's library.
