About the Book
The art and science of clinical dermatology rest with the ability of the clinician to formulate an appropriate differential diagnosis by defining and synthesizing the physical findings; this book serves as a guide in that quest, and will be both educational and stimulating to dermatologists at all levels of training and practice. One of the most ambitious texts to be published in dermatology some years, it is a comprehensive guide to dermatologic conditions, classified by physical findings, and referenced to current literature. There are 284 entries, arranged alphabetically.
Readers who use the text in conjunction with the atlas of clinical photographs will be able to fine-tune their organizational thought processes at the same time as their visual diagnostic skills in an instructive, enjoyable intellectual and clinical exercise. This unique high-quality road map through clinical dermatology should form part of the core library of every practicing dermatologist.
