This best selling text has been completely revised and refreshed in the fourth edition. The authors aim to enthuse family doctors (for whom they are primarily writing) to enjoy the challenge of diagnosing and treating skin conditions.
Clinical Dermatology contains over 500 high quality pictures and diagrams matched with many colourful phrases to illustrate and entertain as it teaches. It has established a reputation as a ‘way of learning’ and as a cogent overview of the subject for the aspiring specialist. Readers are guided through the maze that too often lies between the presenting skin complaint and its final diagnosis and treatment. The authors have created an easily read text with enough detail to clarify the subject but not enough to obscure it.
This fourth edition contains new chapters on racially pigmented skin, dermatology of different age groups and cosmetic dermatology. Relevant internet sites are now clearly highlighted at the end of each chapter and the comprehensive formulary has been updated.

This book acknowledges that clinical dermatology is a visual specialty. The route to diagnostic understanding is a combination of access to photographic material combined with a simple scheme for recognising primary skin lesions. Clinical dermatology is designed to help undergraduate medical students, general practitioners, general physicians (the secondary market) requiring a fundamental knowledge of dermatology, and trainee dermatologists. The book contains chapters which cover all the common skin diseases in the context of their underlying pathological processes and the way in which disturbances of the function of the skin produce recognisable physical signs. These are punctuated by short, sometimes witty learning points. It also includes chapters which set skin disease in perspective (including skin and psyche), describe the structure and function of the skin and review immunology of the skin. At the end of the book there is an important chapter on drug reactions and a comprehensive section of dermatological therapy followed by a formulary. The formulary includes preparations used in both the UK and USA. Drugs are referred to by both approved and trade names. This new edition includes three new chapters; racially pigmented skin, dermatology in different age groups (inc pregnancy), cosmetic dermatology. There will be increased coverage of lasers, 'biologicals', and dermatoscopy throughout the book and the fourth edtion will contains summary boxes of the main UK and USA guidelines for the first time.
