Text Atlas of Pathology of the Foot tackles the myriad disorders that affect the nethermost regions. The word pathology should not deter the reader, for this is a clinical (not a histologic) atlas. This compact 25 × 19-cm, 205-page volume is packed with high-quality pictures. Each color plate is accompanied by a short paragraph outlining the clinical features of the disorder and a differential diagnosis. The table of contents and index are well organized, making the book easy to use. Topics are grouped into 5 chapters that progress from inflammatory and proliferative conditions to genodermatoses and infections, and finishing with a number of miscellaneous conditions.
