Years of teaching experience are reflected in this book designed for students and practitioners. The objective is achieved with a format similar to an expanded outline and with a noncontroversial approach to diagnosis of disease and treatment. Excellent illustrations and charts are distributed liberally throughout the text. Instructions and information are stated clearly and concisely. There are no references, but it is clearly implied that the book is intended to complement a larger text. The beginning consists of general background knowledge: anatomy, physiology, allergy, mycology, therapy, and related subjects. Most of the book is devoted to specific diseases discussed under regional involvement, morphologic groups, and those involving cutaneous appendages. All the information is readable and presented at the medical student's level in orderly, informative, brief, yet interesting fashion. The material is current.
