Product Description:

"Should serve as a standard against which all future atlases will be measured."--New England Journal of Medicine, on a previous edition. This trusted, bestselling color atlas presents a wide array of skin conditions, from the most common to life-threatening melanoma and HIV/AIDS. Retains its easy-to-use format that depicts each disease entity, then thoroughly describes the disorder with a brief overview: epidemiology and etiology; history; physical exam; differential diagnosis; laboratory findings; diagnosis; and management. Now features dozens of new and improved illustrations, current management strategies, an updated two-color design, and case reports where appropriate. Unsurpassed for its low price, extensive use of superb color illustrations, and ease of use by health care professionals at all levels.
