Teledermatology is the delivery of dermatologic health care to remote locations by means of telecommunications and information technology. Although multiple texts on telemedicine exist, reports on teledermatology have appeared only recently in the literature. Now, the first text dedicated to teledermatology is available. Teledermatology, edited by Richard Wootton from Australia and Amanda Oakley from New Zealand is the third book in the Royal Society of Medicine's telemedicine series. Prior books include The Legal and Ethical Aspects of Telemedicine (1988) and Introduction to Telemedicine (1999).
