"The advantage of this book over others lies in the clinical diagnostic algorithms. The references are helpfully grouped according to topic at the end of each chapter. All in all, this is a wonderful introductory book for learning pediatric dermatology, and the teaching principles would pertain to adult dermatology as well"-Patricia Wong, MD(Stanford University Medical Center) Doody Review: 4 stars
