The color photographs are magnificent. The series editor…is to be commended for his vision in developing such a distinguished series. Three enthusiastic pediatric dermatologists created the pediatric dermatology volume." - JAMA, June 2009
"This book is very valuable for emergency department doctors or GPs who are faced with a child with an unusual rash or skin presentation. The grouping of conditions into easily readable chapters scattered with copious illustrations and very useful data tables makes this book invaluable. This is an outstanding book.
