This book is the third manual of common dermatologic problems which Dr. Pillsbury has coauthored in the past 30 years. It provides the principles of diagnosis and treatment of cutaneous disease for nondermatologists. It is essentially a solo effort by a distinguished master of the art of dermatology.
The 263 illustrations, mostly in color, constitute a major part of this volume, and are of excellent quality.
The opening chapter is a concise summary of important aspects of the anatomy and physiology of the skin. This is followed by brief chapters on pathologic patterns of skin disease and principles of dermatologic diagnosis. The next five chapters present a practical regional approach to dermatologic diagnosis.
Chapters 9 through 21 present brief discussions and profuse illustrations of the diagnosis and treatment of common skin conditions. A chapter on cutaneous signs of systemic disease reminds the clinician that the skin is a mirror of systemic processes.
The book concludes with chapters on
