Summary

Summary

This reference serves as a primer, an atlas, a consultant, and a supplement to more in-depth dermatology texts and medical literature. It focuses on the diagnosis and management of the most common skin problems encountered in an outpatient setting. Twenty-seven chapters, extensively illustrated in color, are divided into common disorders, the interrelationship between the skin and systemic disease, and basic and advanced dermatological procedures. An appendix provides patient handout material in both English and Spanish. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
