Book Description

This atlas of dermatology has a unique clinical orientation and lays emphasis on morphology. The disease entities are arranged according to the morphology of lesions, not etiologically. This pattern of placement is more useful for both teaching and learning and serves as an important aid in making a diagnosis as this approach is based on the way patients present themselves in out-patient departments. The key diagnostic clinical pointers too have been provided with images which helps one suspect the diagnosis and exclude clinical differentials. This atlas would serve as a ready reckoner for residents and practitioners.

Key Features

  • Approaches skin disorders morphologically
  • Emphasizes on key diagnostic clinical pointers
  • Includes different presentations of common skin conditions
  • Emphasizes on common clinical conditions presenting in a routine OPD
  • Includes good quality clinical photographs
