Abstract

This book is the first in an annual series designed to bring both the dermatologist and the nondermatologist up to date on recent progress in dermatology. For the most part, this goal is achieved. There are excellent chapters on heritable skin diseases including prenatal diagnosis, systemic disease and light energy, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, herpes infections, neutrophilic dermatoses, new concepts of pyoderma gangrenosum, and HLA typing in dermatology. Other subjects include melanoma, vitiligo, bullous diseases, pseudobenign lesions, xanthomatosis, and necrotizing venulitis, all reviewed and updated by authorities in each field. References are numerous and current.

I found this book enjoyable to read, with each chapter well outlined and written in a clear, concise style. I recommend this text to all dermatologists, especially to those in training, as a guide to recent advances.
