Bravo! This 2-volume text is a feather in the cap of the emerging specialty of pediatric dermatology. For anyone who has ever questioned how adult and pediatric dermatology differ, the answers are all here.

The 2 outstanding qualities of this textbook are organization and illustrations. Beginning with the table of contents, the sections are further divided into subsections. This contributes to the user friendliness of this book. The best example of this is the 91-page section on atopic dermatitis with 11 subsections. Controversial issues such as the role of diet and environmental allergens are discussed. Current research is presented allowing readers to draw their own conclusions without author bias.
