This fully revised new edition of the bestseller combines the advantages of a color atlas with those of a concise textbook, and details the essential features of all but the very rarest skin diseases. The book provides the definition of each disease/disorder followed by clinical features, epidemiology, differential diagnosis, investigations and special points. Every opportunity is taken to illustrate variations in conditions that occur with age or racial group. The second edition now features treatment and management for each disease and disorder and expanded or new sections for over 40 conditions, plus 100 new clinical color photographs. A Colour Handbook of Dermatology will appeal to a wide range of reader, including dermatologists in practice and training; post-registration trainees in acute medicine; general practitioners; specialist nurses; and senior medical students.
“Comprehensive and reasonably priced… The quality of the colour photographs is really excellent… as good as any I have seen… compact and consistent layout… makes the book very user friendly , ideal for cramming or speed reading… A really first class book for the doctor who wants to get an overview of the wider range of less common dermatological problems… a strong recommend for the entry level dermatology trainee and MRCP students, and a worthy addition to the practice library.”–Stephen Hayes, Primary Care Dermatology Society, Bulletin, 1 August 2010
“I am very impressed with this jolly good little book… At £25 for 500 high quality pictures it is excellent value for money. It was the correct decision to add more text to cover the basic treatment of the conditions that were illustrated because it now completely meets the needs of the target audience…those starting out in dermatological training, whether doctors or nurses…as well as more experienced health professionals in other disciplines, including general practice and occupational health. There is no need to buy more than one book.”–Chris Bunker, University College Hospital, London, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, 15 October 2010
“Combines high-quality pictures with easy-to-read text, thus making this book of far greater value than an atlas alone.. highly recommended to practitioners with an interest in dermatology, medical students and trainees in dermatology.”–Dermatology
“This almost pocket-sized book is a real treasure…bound to appeal to a wide range of people, including medical students, dermatologists, general physicians and general practitioners.”–Postgraduate Medical Journal
“The book is well laid-out, with detailed contents page and index…the book should stand the test of time.”–G P
