    This Atlas of Dermatology has a unique clinical orientation with an emphasis on morphology. The disease entities are arranged according to the morphology of lesions to aid diagnosis. This pattern of placement is more useful for both teaching and learning and serves as an important aid in making a diagnosis being based on the way patients present themselves in out-patient departments. With key diagnostic clinical pointers generously illustrated to help the reader in diagnosing and excluding clinical differentials, this Atlas will serve as a helpful source for medical residents and practitioners specialising in Clinical Dermatology.
