The pediatrician is, unfortunately, often an excellent dermatologist. (This review was written by a dermatologist.) This is a book for his library. Its new style is as attractive as the daughters to whom it is affectionately dedicated. This popular textbook, now in its fifth edition, does give, as it says in the Preface, practical diagnostic and therapeutic suggestions for the pediatrician. The pictures are excellent and show that good black-and-white pictures of lesions are still superior to poor colored reproductions. New syndromes and disorders are included. The last three chapters on radiation and physical therapy may not be of interest to the pediatrician, but they are valuable as reference works and indicate the care that dermatologists use when such forms of therapy are indicated.
