Skin Disease: Diagnosis and treatment has been written to fit the clinical needs of every busy primary care provider. Specifically designed for quick reference, the book focuses on the 250 diseases most likely to be seen in everyday practice, and includes practical and clear advice for diagnosis and therapy, including anterior and posterior diagrams of where diseases may be found on the body, classification of primary, secondary and special lesions, and over 700 never-before published full-color photographs that show the classic manifestations of disease and rarer variations. The coverage of pediatric skin disease is also covered throughout, together with clinical pearls and advice on when to refer the patient to the specialist. This book is an essential resource for primary care practitioners, internists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, emergency room physicians, and medical students studying for the boards. =Reviews Doody's Rating: * * * The book is a good bargain for the information provided. General medical practitioners should find it useful in their practices. The treatment for common skin disorders is discussed in this second edition book. Good clinical tips are provided and special precautions for the pediatric population are highlighted in colored boxes. The treatment approaches are well outlined. Some of the photographs appear to be copies of copies or were photographed too far away and the finer details in the skin are not very clear. Other photographs show excellent detail, such as the two pages showing the various clinical variation in seborrheic keratoses.
