Clinical dermatology: an illustrated textbook

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, Incorporated, 1986 - Medical - 328 pages
This highly successful volume provides a thorough, modern introduction to clinical dermatology. The second edition has been extensively revised and rewritten with expanded growth points at the end of each chapter explaining new and important developments. Other special features include the sections on current advice and information on therapy, the many clinical color plates, a glossary of terms, and blank pages for individual notes. "Contains many excellent photographs, so for most readers the addtional purchase of a dermatological atlas will be unneccessary...It is tightly packed with information about all the common and many of the less common skin diseases."--The Lancet "Finally, a well written, beautifully illustrated student level dermatology text has been published...The illustrations...have to rank among the best I have seen in any text including most atlases of dermatology."--Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology
