The author is a leading dematologist of Czechoslovakia and has studied more than 200 cases representing various types of the dermoscleroses. In this monograph he discusses these cases and summarizes the literature in a comprehensive and well-organized manner. The main body of the text is written in Czechoslovakian, a language which is unfamiliar to me, and, therefore, this review is based on the excellent 7-page English summary. A very complete bibliography, consisting of 571 references, is included.
The book is divided into 8 parts and the summary is also compartmentalized in a similar manner. The largest sections of the book are devoted to a discussion of diffuse (noncircumscribed) scleroderma, circumscribed (localized) scleroderma, and the relationship of the dermoscleroses to other collagen diseases. In other chapters, he reviews the state of our knowledge at the present time regarding etiology and therapy. He mentions the numerous therapeutic agents which have been tried
