Abstract

Petres and Hundeiker of the dermatologic university clinics of Freiburg and Giessen, respectively, cooperated in writing a monograph entitled Corrective Dermatology: Operations on the Skin.

Their teacher, Kalkoff, director of the Dermatologic Unversity Clinic of Freiburg, points out in the preface that corrective dermatology has had a firm place in dermatology since the end of the last century. Lang of Vienna was famous for his plastic surgical operations on lupus vulgaris. More recently, Schreuss of Düsseldorf and Moncorps of Munich taught and practiced operative methods of corrective dermatology.

The text describes various procedures in the treatment of numerous skin lesions, in particular, benign and malignant tumors. Discussed in detail are the bases of dermatosurgery, the necessary set of operative instruments, pre- and postoperative care, methods of inducing anesthesia, and techniques of incision and suturing. Dermabrasion, electrosurgery, and curettage are also mentioned. The authors have not had experience with Mohs chemosurgery
