9780415402637: Clinician's Guide to Dermatologic Differential Diagnosis 2 Volume Set (v. 1 & v. 2)

One of the most ambitious sets to be published in dermatology for some years, these comprehensive guides to dermatologic conditions, classified by physical findings, are referenced to current literature. There are 284 entries, arranged alphabetically. The art and science of clinical dermatology rest with the ability of the clinician to formulate an appropriate differential diagnosis by defining and synthesizing the physical findings; this book serves as a guide in that quest, and will be both educational and stimulating to dermatologists at all levels of training and practice. Readers who use this Text in conjunction with the separate Atlas of clinical photographs will be able to fine-tune their organizational thought processes at the same time as their visual diagnostic skills in an instructive and enjoyable intellectual and clinical exercise. This unique high-quality road map through clinical dermatology should form part of the core library of every practicing dermatologist.

"For the most sophisticated and difficult problems in dermatological differential diagnoses, as well as for daily consultative purposes, this magnificent book is without peer. [...] this magnificent two-volume tome is a must, not only for medical libraries, but for the libraries of practitioners who frequently encounter dermatological disorders int heir differential diagnosis. A Clinician's Guide to Dermatologic Differential Diagnosis by Schneiderman and Grossman should be part of the personal libraries of emergency room physicians, general internists, hospitalists, dermatologists, rheumatologists/immunologists, hematologists, oncologists, pediatrics, and infectious disease clinicians. [...]There is simply no finer text/atlas of dermatological differential diagnosis. Schneiderman and Grossman's text cannot be too highly recommended to any clinician seeing patients with dermatological findings." Burke A. Cunha, Infectious Disease Practice for Clinicians

"I have reviewed many books, several hundred to be more exact, but this two-volume set is by far the most unique book I have encountered. Volume 1 is an extremely detailed listing of differential diagnostic possibilities, with titles such as cutis laxa [...] Under each category, the differential diagnostic considerations are broken down into categories [...] Volume 2 contains more than 4000 color illustrations arranged in exactly the same way."

"This book is the distillation of many years of resident teaching conferences offered by Drs Schneidermann and Grossman [...] I can only say in admiration that this group of residents has with certainty come away with an incredible amount of knowledge. I have never seen a book with more data per running inch or gram than A Clinician's Guide to Dermatologic Differential Diagnosis. The references are both current and classic, and from standard sources [...] as well as more exotic sites [...] In addition, the illustrations are both high quality and extensive, so one gets a feeling for the variation of a given disease, rather than seeing just one pristine example."

"Residents can get a multi-faceted exhaustive discussion of any differential diagnostic issue"

"There never has been and never will be a more complete listing for dermatologic differential diagnostic considerations or a better photographic gallery to illustrate these possiblities. We should all be grateful to Drs Schneiderman and Grossman for an incredible amount of work, which should be immortalized in dermatology libraries everywhere."

"I recommend this book without reservation to all teaching programs, most of which are not lucky enough to have clinical teachers as devoted and knowledgable as these two."

Walter Burgdorf, MD, Tutzing Germany. (J AM ACAD DERMATOL: Feb 2007)

About Vol 1

"It provides thorough listings of differential diagnoses, the likes of which cannot be rivalled in current dermatology literature."

About Vol 2

"'Volume 2: The Atlas' presents an impressive display of colour photographs of some of the conditions listed in Volume 1. [...] The accompanying atlas is a remarkable collection of over 4000 clinical images. This includes multiple examples of rare conditions, to display varying presentations."

About the Set

"This book is most likely to be of use to the practicing dermatologist when faced with a challenging patient, and searching for an exhaustive list of possible differential diagnoses."

Dr Helen Saunders, Victoria, Australia. (Australasian Journal of Dermatology Vol 48 Issue 2. Dec 2006)
