This outstanding dermatological handbook has enjoyed a fine reputation since the release of the first edition. The current one, edited by Kenneth A. Arndt and Kathryn E. Bowers in collaboration with Murad Alam, Rachel Reynolds, and Sandy Tsao, has been thoroughly updated and revised to include the most recent information on pathophysiology, diagnosis, and therapy of common skin diseases. The material is concise and clear but includes the essentials. Of particular interest, the section "Treatment Principles and Formulary" presents major therapeutic principles and detailed guides for dermatological medication.
