Atlas of Differential Diagnosis in Dermatology, Volume 478
This book is unique and easy to use. The content is logically organized; diseases are compared and contrasted on an easy-to-use table of "common and distinguishing features" which highlights the diseases they are most likely to be compared. The diseases are then examined in more detail in a discussion section that looks at history, anatomical and geographic distribution, clinical findings, pathology, distinguishing features and brief coverage of treatments.
