Front Cover

1 Review
More than just an atlas, this is a complete textbook - with over 400 colour plates - on the diagnosis and management of dermatological diseases and disorders. It covers the most commonly encountered dermatological conditions. In addition, it has special chapters on patient history, examination, and principles of treatment. The illustrations and text together form a comprehensive, up-to-date guide to dermatological differential diagnosis and a practical aid to both recognition and management. In addition to the clinical photographs, each disorder is carefully discussed in terms of cause and natural history. These descriptions provide precisely the amount of detail which, together with the illustrations, will permit the reader to arrive at an appropriate diagnosis.
