The writers have presented an easy-to-read book that would be excellent for students or for the busy physician as a refresher course in practical dermatology. Chapter 5, on regional diagnosis, would be useful when confronted with an unrecognized skin condition. Descriptions of lesions and syndromes are reinforced with dermatological therapy.
The authors of a synopsis have difficulty in deciding what subjects should be included, but frequency of occurrence must not have dictated these choices. Yellow nails are described and given a full-page color plate, but the green nails of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection, frequently seen in office practice, are not mentioned.
