As the author points out, a proper knowledge of therapeutic details is of the greatest importance in treating patients with skin diseases—probably more so than in any other branch of medicine. By their nature most textbooks are properly more concerned with problems of diagnosis and principles of treatment and less with details of treatment. In this well-written book, the author has filled this void by furnishing detailed descriptions of practical procedures used in the management of skin diseases. The emphasis throughout is on such everyday matters as dressings, office procedures, minor operations, topical remedies, and the general aspects of management. The material is presented clearly, and there is much of practical value in this book to interest both the practitioner and the nurse.
