Tom Provost and John Flynn from Johns Hopkins Medical Institution have produced an exciting new book, Cutaneous Medicine: Cutaneous Manifestations of Systemic Disease. These authors, who acknowledge help from a wide group of associates largely from the Johns Hopkins Medical Institution, have produced an elegant book with 73 chapters. The book is very manageable in size, being less than 1000 pages, and is very helpfully accompanied by a CD-ROM, which is a bonus that includes an extended bibliography from the textbook as well as a complete text and illustrations of the book in fully searchable PDF files. Dr Provost, who is the senior author of the book, is certainly one the most distinguished medical dermatologists in the United States. During his 15-year tenure as Chief of Dermatology at Johns Hopkins, he has developed a broad-based department and has been very successful in training academic dermatologists with extensive training in both dermatology and internal medicine.
