Abstract

British authors Verbov and Morley provide an atlas that serves as a reference to the pediatrician and student of dermatology. Photographs represent both common dermatologic conditions and rare disorders that have classic appearances. The selection of dermatologic problems is appropriate, although such entities as chilblains are more relevant to British dermatologists, and number of disorders seen frequently enough to warrant a photograph or discussion are not presented. Included are scarlet fever, tinea versicolor, herpangina, Gianotti-Crosti syndrome or infantile papular acrodermatitis, and classic Hemophilus influenzae buccal cellulitis. I would also mention Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis, pilomatricoma, cutis laxa, and keratosis follicularis.

The descriptions associated with each photograph are concise. However, a few inaccuracies are misleading to American dermatologists.

Furthermore, they fail to mention Tricophyton
