This monograph is a compilation of 12 lectures given to various groups of medical students. Its purpose is to stimulate the young physician to an increased knowledge of dermatology and to emphasize to the young dermatologist the relationship between the dermatoses and systemic disease. It is written in comparatively simple fashion, and its condensed form should aid the candidate for a specialty board examination. Most of the material is recent and incorporates many new theories integrating the major dermatoses with modern medical concepts. The author has proved his point that a study of cutaneous eruptions not only enables the physician to exercise his powers of observation and deduction but also improves his diagnostic ability. The typography and the illustrations are excellent, and the bibliography gives the most important sources of general information in the field.
