Advances in Dermatology aims to update readers in selected areas of dermatology. The book is divided into five parts: "Clinical Research," "Dermatopathology," "Pediatric Skin Disease," "Internal Medicine," and "Dermatologic Surgery." Each heading has two or three in-depth chapters on diverse topics. Most chapters end with a succinct summary as well as an editor's comment that puts the chapter in dermatologic perspective.
"Clinical Research" contains in-depth basic science chapters on antinuclear antibodies, growth factors, and keratinocyte cytokines. Although the antinuclear antibody chapter discusses clinical correlations, the major emphasis of these chapters is on the activation, function, and regulation of these molecules. "Dermatopathology" focuses on dermatoses of pregnancy, the role of human papillomavirus in cutaneous neoplasia, and the very new technique of "acoustic microscopy." "Pediatric Skin Disease" includes an update on the ability to prenatally diagnose severe dermatologic disorders and also presents discussions of advances made in the treatment of vulvar diseases
