This reference should enable busy clinicians to quickly find the information they need to diagnose and treat patients with dermatologic problems. It covers 110 problems in a consistent two-page format designed for rapid access. The first page describes signs, symptoms, appropriate investigations, and complications; the second page presents pharmacological and nonpharmacological treatment options. Differential diagnosis, etiology, epidemiology, treatment aims, prognosis, and references are discussed, wherever appropriate, in sidebars that frame the primary presentations. More than 100 illustrations complement the text. Special sections review dermatologic compounding, topical and systemic therapy, and unique dermatologic modalities such as cryotherapy and phototherapy.
