5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is the BEST edition of Fitzpatrick's Dermatology in General Medicine. Every chapter has been completely rewritten and updated; many new chapters cover new topics such as atypical melanocytic nevi, oncogenes, and epidemiology; and therapy, which in previous editions was not extensively covered, now has over 300 pages devoted to therapeutics, surgery, and laser. Clinical color photographs and microscopic color photographs of histology appear in every chapter, a big improvement over the older editions that had black-and-white pictures. Everyone needs to own a copy of this superb seventh edition....This is an outstanding book and if you have only one dermatology book, this is the one. You should beg, borrow, or sell apples on the street to buy it. It is the BEST!"--Doody's Review Service

In no other source but Fitzpatrick's can you find the most comprehensive, current, and authoritative coverage of the entire spectrum of dermatologic science, diagnosis, treatment, and management. Now in a more accessible format, with everything you need to know about skin, skin symptoms, and skin diseases right at your fingertips -- from the basic science of the skin as an immunoprotective organ to the day-to-day clinical issues of managing skin diseases like psoriasis, acne, and skin cancer.

Encyclopedic in scope, yet skillfully edited so that it's easy to read and use every day, this unsurpassed resource delivers a timely look at dermatologic therapeutics as well as dermatologic surgery and cosmetic dermatology. In addition, 3,000 eye-catching full-color photographs and hundreds of time-saving tables encapsulate core concepts, while scores of references facilitate further research.
