Pediatricians see many children with dermatologic conditions, but little time is spent training pediatric residents in dermatology. Conversely, children make up a small proportion of the average dermatologist's patient base. Hence, I believe there is an audience and appetite for an accessible reference book on pediatric dermatology with many illustrations that help a physician to more readily match the patient to the diagnosis. Cohen's Pediatric Dermatology handily achieves this goal.
