This volume is a guide to pediatric dermatologic therapy for pediatricians, dermatologists, and family practitioners. The first chapter is devoted to an overview of dermatologic therapy best suited to nondermatologists or residents in dermatology. The remaining 27 chapters review a variety of disorders, including papulosquamous eruptions, infections, infestations, selected genodermatoses, vesiculobullous diseases, tumors, hair and pigmentary disorders, collagen diseases, acne, urticaria, and the mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome.

The problems inherent in addressing the needs of a variety of medical specialists are evident in the exhaustive detail of some chapters and the more superficial approach of others. The bibliographies in some chapters could be more inclusive and, in general, more up to date. Clinical photographs are numerous; they are in black and white and generally of good quality. Many of the chapters contain excellent reference tables that all readers should find helpful as they approach dermatologic disorders in the pediatric patient.
