Abstract

One must agree with the foreword by the late Dr Barney Usher, to wit, "It is time it [morphology] resumed its rightful place in the scheme of things." It should be part of the welltempered dermatologist's expertise. The "compleat" clinician should be able to create in clear, universally understood words the image of the skin and its ailments.

The author has divided the book into chapters under morphologic headings such as erythema, urticaria, purpuras, papules, nodules, and others. Each chapter begins with an overview that is then expanded. The book closes with a short section on method of examination, dermatologic topography, a glossary, and the index. There is no bibliography, but the author acknowledges his debt to the 1920 text of Darier and the late Kurt Wiener's excellent translation of H. W. Siemen's text. There are some blackand-white photographic illustrations and some line diagrams of topography.
