This comprehensive review of the year's most significant advances in dermatologic surgery delivers the quality we have come to expect from the Year Book series. After reviewing nearly 1000 journals, selected citations are abstracted by a professional writer to a review of approximately 0.5 to 1 page. An editor concludes each summary with a commentary on the article. Topics cover a broad sweep of information, including basic dermatologic surgery, cutaneous oncology, surgical reconstruction, and aesthetic dermatologic surgery. A thorough subject index and complete author index complement the text.
This text is an excellent tool for the reader to catch up on the most recent advances in dermatologic surgery and benefit from an experienced surgeon's interpretation of the information. Furthermore, some articles are so specific, and the editor's experience so broad, that the section almost functions as a review of the topic. For example, an article on periocular Merkel cell carcinomas
