To treat a patient with pityriasis rubra pilaris or neutrophilic eccrine hidrandenitis, a diligent clinican no doubt would need to read further about these conditions. To a nondermatologist, these entities probably sound fictitious (they are very real). This new multi-author text is just what is needed: the dermatologic equivalent of a dictionary for bad spellers.
Standard comprehensive textbooks on dermatology are more than 2000 pages and several volumes long. Other texts are pocket books and cover only "core material" for students. Principles and Practice is a useful text of rational size and scope.
The book starts with the customary chapters
Principles and Practice of Dermatology. Ann Intern Med. ;114:998. doi: 10.7326/0003-4819-114-11-998_3
