The second edition of this book has the same format as the first, with more illustrations and differential diagnoses. The volume contains 245 excellent illustrations, 19 more than the previous one. Those who liked the first edition will no doubt like the second.
The beginning covers the basics of clinical dermatologic diagnosis. The text is logically divided according to anatomic divisions of the skin as a basis for the chapter arrangement (ie, cutis, appendages, pigment, subcutaneous, blood vessels, nervous system). The chapters are then subdivided according to congenital diseases, acquired diseases, and tumors. The author states that a textbook will follow this publication to embellish the text included in the atlas. The text covers the diagnosis and the pertinent clinical findings, with a synopsis of the specific case being presented and the differential diagnosis for each illustration.
