This text is written by clinicians for clinicians. It is a compact, concise, and portable spiral-bound book that blends to perfection the clinical features and management of most common and many uncommon mucocutaneous disorders. Each section of the text, eg, blistering disorders, has its own set of pertinent reverences that follow each described entity. Each reference, in turn, has a one-sentence summary. Such exquisite organization makes this book extremely easy for the clinician to refer to at any time.
One of the most impressive features of the text is the concise nature of the prose. The individual authors of each section have taken great pains to state facts and opinions in sentences and paragraphs that are to the point and very readable. For example, the myriad of subtypes of epidermolysis bullosa are described in significant detail with the pathogenesis and management adequately outlined together with nine excellent references in 4.5
