This lavishly illustrated guide from experts will enable practitioners to get the most out of dermoscopy for investigations and treatments in general dermatology.

Reviews

"In some ways, inflammatory diseases are more challenging than pigmented lesions diagnostically. This book does an admirable job of helping demystify the process."
