In his book, Wodniansky describes the vast array of skin and venereal diseases, with emphasis on those that occur frequently in Central Europe or that are of particular importance.
The author introduces his work with five general chapters that describe (1) the normal anatomy and the histologic and physiologic features of the skin and appendages, (2) primary and secondary lesions, (3) general pathologic features of the epidermis and corium, (4) special laboratory examinations, and (5) important procedures for treatment of skin and venereal diseases.
The remainder of the book is structured in chapters, each of which concerns an individual disease that is discussed on the basis of the following features: frequency of occurrence (based on observations at the First Dermatology Clinic of the University of Vienna), summary of disease characteristics, description of skin manifestations, additional symptoms, course and prognosis, histologic features, diagnosis and differential diagnosis, causes and pathogenesis, and therapy.
