“One of the biggest advantages of this book is that it can be readily accessed in the clinic and the most important papers have been selected out for the reader. Particularly useful is the way in which each treatment is broken down into five levels of evidence for the treatment of that condition, from the gold standard of a doubleblind study to anecdotal case reports. Furthermore, the references are summarised, usually in a brief paragraph in the text itself. The treatments are broken down into first-, secondand third-line therapies.'' Judges comments
"Occasionally a text really catches one’s eye, and so it was with Treatment of Skin Disease. This is a multi-author A to Z text covering approximately 260 dermatological conditions. It is well-illustrated with a high standard in terms of production values, and also provides online access to its content via the expert consult website.There is an excellent balance of conciseness versus comprehensive content."
Treatment of Skin Disease. Comprehensive therapeutic strategies.
This is a must-have book and definitely among the top dermatology books published this year. I look forward to the next edition and applaud the authors for their superb efforts in educating us in a quickly changing field which makes dermatology fun and challenging. P.S. It's an unbelievable steal at 25 cents a page! Doody's Review - Weighted Numerical Score: 96 - 4 Stars!
