Kimmig and Jänner of the dermatologic clinic of the University of Hamburg prepared a colored pocket atlas of skin and venereal diseases that is a shortened version of the third edition of Friboes and Schönfeld's atlas of skin and venereal diseases published by the authors in 1966.
This booklet of 219 pages gives in a concise form the clinical manifestations of all common and the majority of less common skin diseases. A few, such as amyloidosis, incontinentia pigmenti, and pemphigus erythematosus, are not mentioned, nor are the newer classifications of ichthyosis and familiar hyperlipidemias.
