Physical Signs in Dermatology
Successful diagnosis of skin conditions relies on the interpretation of a combination of visual features. PHYSICAL SIGNS IN DERMATOLOGY focuses on the individual signs grouped according to characteristics such as shape, pattern, color, texture, and type of lesion. This innovative, signs-based approach enables not only the trainee and practicing dermatologist, but also other specialists, to identify and confirm findings with speed and accuracy.
