Hundreds of dermatologic diagnoses, morphologic features, drug-induced disorders, extracutaneous manifestations, histologic findings, and random other findings are listed in alphabetical order and in a homogeneous, reader-friendly structure. The differential diagnoses are shown under each main diagnosis, sorted according to similarity with that diagnosis. Since the first edition, approaching 50 new diagnoses have been added, and many new images included. This easily portable book will be of great value for dermatologists and all who deal with dermatologic diseases.
