This is a radically revised edition of a bestseller. It combines the advantages of a colour atlas with those of a concise textbook, and details the essential features of all but the very rarest skin diseases. The book provides the definition of each disease/disorder, clinical features, epidemiology, differential diagnosis, investigations and special points. Every opportunity is taken to illustrate variations in conditions that occur with age or racial group. The second edition now features treatment and management for each disease and disorder, has expanded or new sections for over 40 conditions and includes 100 new clinical colour photographs.A Colour Handbook of Dermatology appeals to a wide range of readers: dermatologists in practice and training; post-registration trainees/residents in acute medicine; primary care physicians; specialist nurses and senior medical students.
