In the preface to the fifth edition of Darier's text A. Civatte stated that the preparation of the edition greatly concerned J. Darier during his last months. Civatte with Tzanck intentionally followed the plan used by Darier in earlier editions. The clinical descriptions were scarcely altered although histologic details were added. Civatte stated that he also added discussions concerning newer developments in the study of etiology, pathogenesis and pathologic physiology. There is an introduction of 15 pages in which the general plan of the book is discussed. The work is divided into two parts, the first devoted to the morphologic study of dermatoses and the second to nosologic discussion.
