Written by an internationally renowned researcher and teacher, this book provides a compendium of syndromes and dermatologic conditions. Completely revised and updated, the second edition includes genetic information, the genes and their loci, and the genetic linkage of certain syndromes that are now grouped with other diseases. The book retains the popular format of the first edition and includes color pictures of key syndromes from one of the major collections in the U.S. These features combine to make it an important book for office-based dermatologists who frequently see these problems in their practice and for dermatology residents who need this information to pass their boards.
"…If you need to research an unusual syndrome in a few seconds, this will provide you with the means to do so. Essential physical findings are distilled down to the basics in this book."
Alphabetical list of individual syndromes gives quick access to the syndromes.
