This is a comprehensive and thorough piece of work that draws on the broad expertise of a wide array of authors. The material is logically divided into six parts that conform to the major subdivisions of internal medicine. It is a book that should have appeal for dermatologists, internists, and generalists, The photographs are of good quality and include some excellent color reproductions.
If there is any criticism to be found of this book, it is the inevitable one—it attempts to go beyond the cutaneous aspects of internal disease. It attempts to be more complete and goes into substantially greater depth regarding some of the entities discussed, although, in some chapters, a more extensive discussion is useful. In other chapters, however, such a task is ambitious; it really falls outside of the general area of the cutaneous manifestations of internal disease and would ordinarily be included in an internal medicine
