Arch Dermatol. 2001;137(11):1538. doi:

What are puncta pruritica? What are the features of Gleich syndrome? These questions and many others are answered in The Clinical Management of Itching. In this easy-to-read handbook, Dr Fleischer presents a concise outline of the myriad conditions that may be associated with pruritus. Readers familiar with Jeffrey Bernhard's already classic Itch: Mechanisms and Management of Pruritus (McGraw-Hill Inc, 1994) will immediately notice the different format of the present work, which is organized in an outline format that achieves the author's stated aim of "making the text more useful for the busy clinician."
