The third edition of Psoriasis is the most thorough, comprehensive, and up-to-date book on the subject currently available. Edited by Roenigk and Maibach and written by the world's leading psoriasis experts, it deserves a space in every dermatologist's library. It can be used both as a reference manual for more experienced dermatologists or as a read-through textbook for residents and fellows. The book is divided into the following 9 sections: clinical features, incidence and genetics, pathogenesis, histology, topical therapy, phototherapy, systemic therapy, new treatments, and innovations and patient involvement in psoriasis.
