Professor Marks of the University of Wales in Cardiff has revised and updated his text, Skin Disease in Old Age. As the age of the population in developed countries continues to increase, skin diseases will constitute a greater proportion of worldwide health care. Accordingly, well-written summaries provide useful insights for clinicians. This text seems aimed not only at dermatologists, but also at geriatricians and other generalists with an interest in treating skin diseases.
