Dermatologists in clinical practice will find the Atlas of Hair and Nails an important addition to their medical library. The book is well organized, easy to read, and beautifully illustrated with excellent clinical photographs. In addition, it includes helpful recommendations for differential diagnosis.
Chapters are on the whole well written and cogent. The chapters "Developmental and Hereditary Disorders," "Dermatological Diseases That Affect the Nail," and "Nail Signs of Systemic Disease" are replete with fascinating photographs, diagnostically helpful tables, and abundant references.
