Dr Zacarian made a major contribution in the fields of cryosurgery and dermatology with the publication of his first volume on cryosurgery. This new book continues to uphold the excellent quality of his work as well as his leadership in this field. It gives up-to-date information; is lavishly illustrated, including statistical tables and color plates; and is extensively referenced.
