Differential Diagnosis in Dermatology, 4th Edition

New or Used: 3 copies from $70.96
'Brilliant...Take for granted the superb colour photographs, the comprehensive and readable text, the clinical accuracy and acumen of the authors...what's special is the diagnostically and educationally helpful structure. This book understands that most of us do not have photographic memories, and panic when we don't immediately recognise a skin lesion. Provided we can establish a few simple features of the rash - where it is, what colour, how long it has been there, surface characteristics - we turn to the appropriate algorithm, look at the picture for confirmation and come up with the right answer. It is such a relief I could burst into tears of gratitude.' Postgraduate Education for General Practice, on the First Edition Revised and updated for its Fourth Edition with specially added images of pigmented skins, the key aim of Differential Diagnosis in Dermatology remains the same - to allow primary care physicians to diagnose quickly and confidently with the patient present. Chapters are divided into different body areas and contain over 750 illustrations, combining excellent clinical photography with practical text and clear diagrams throughout. By looking inside the front cover at the intuitive 'How To' guide and using the index of algorithms found at the back, diagnosis can be effectively reached by identifying the relevant clinical features. High quality images of white and pigmented skins illustrate each condition, with a concise description of the clinical features and treatment options.
