Published ReviewsDoody's Rating: * * * *
I liked the succinctness of the diagnostic possibilities, the accurate clinical descriptions of the lesions of various skin diseases, and the quality of the photographs. The authors have thoughtfully labeled the sides of the pages for easy referencing as well as the traditional title heads on the upper page. The page number where one can look up other entities when they are mentioned in a particular context help save time. An appendix defines syndromes usually referred to by eponyms. The finer points of distinguishing similar conditions from each other are not covered, but this is a good starting point for demystifying all the different skin eruptions that can occur in some logical fashion. The book is a good value for the price.
This will join other handy pocketbooks, such as Habif's atlases as a helpful tool in diagnosing common skin disorders.
