by Carol Turkington and Jeffrey S. Dover, 448 pp, with some tables and black and white line drawings, $71.50, ISBN 0-8160-4776-6, New York, NY, Facts on File Inc, 2002.
Under the perspicacious guidance of Dover, Turkington has produced a revised version of this standard work. The Encyclopedia of Skin and Skin Disorders now has over 1000 entries, covered in variable but appropriate depth. Recently approved medications, surgical procedures, and cosmetic dermatologic interventions are among the new additions. The alphabetical organization, perhaps the most useful feature of this book, is retained and ensures that this new information is easily retrievable.
