ABC of Dermatology is revised with more illustrations and diagrams, clearer subheadings, and more consistent use of lists and tables.
ABC of Dermatology gives a concise overview of all the essentials of dermatology for non-dermatologists. It is particularly useful in primary care, and is an excellent introduction to dermatology for nurses and medical students.
Rather than systematic description of numerous skin conditions that can overwhelm the non-specialist, a few common conditions are used as a basis for comparison with less common skin diseases. Some sections such as systemic disease and the skin, cutaneous immunology, and practical procedures are less suitable for this approach and are covered in a more didactic manner.
