Book Description 

Should serve as a standard against which all future atlases will be measured."--New England Journal of Medicine, on a previous edition. This trusted, best selling color atlas presents a wide array of skin conditions, from the most common to life-threatening melanoma and HIV/AIDS. Retains its easy-to-use format that depicts each disease entity, then thoroughly describes the disorder with a brief overview: epidemiology and etiology; history; physical exam; differential diagnosis; laboratory findings; diagnosis; and management. Now features dozens of new and improved illustrations, current management strategies, an updated two-color design, and case reports where appropriate. Unsurpassed for its low price, extensive use of superb color illustrations, and ease of use by health care professionals at all levels.

 Great reference, December 18, 2005

Paperback: 1041 pages Publisher: McGraw-Hill Professional; 4 edition (December 7, 2000) Language: English ISBN-10: 0071360387 ISBN-13: 978-0071360388 Product Dimensions: 9 x 6 x 1.4 inches Shipping Weight: 3 pounds My preference overall in terms of derm texts is Habif, mostly due to organization, but this one comes in a close second. Lots of great pics and simple straightforward explanations (sometimes a little too simple). Also probably a great book for laypeople with some knowledge of medical terminology.
