Within this compendium of 281 pages, Winkler describes in alphabetical order symptoms, differential diagnosis, and therapy for skin and venereal diseases. Internal diseases in which skin manifestations are of diagnostic importance are also included. A separate chapter deals with topography and morphology of dermatoses. The comprehensive index facilitates finding all diagnostic and therapeutic data of the text.
Physicians familiar with German can benefit from this abridged but concise compilation of skin and venereal diseases with numerous instructive black-and-white and color illustrations. The treatment part is often polypharmaceutic and, understandably, lists chiefly preparations of German trade names.
