The skin is often the first organ to show that a serious disease exists in the body. Too often, clues from the skin are missed or neglected when examining a patient. From dog bites that don't heal to the dermatological effects of a vegan diet, 50 Cases in Dermatological Medicine demonstrates the astonishing variety of cutaneous responses that occur in a range of underlying pathologies. This fascinating treatise presents fifty cases from King's College Hospital that show the important relationship between dermatology and other medical disciplines.


'Pithy and well written, beautifully photographed, aptly referenced, and chockfull of spectacular cases and clinical pearls, this book was literally hard to put down … An immensely pleasurable read … may be recommended to dermatologists at all levels with a broad variety of interests.' - Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, November 2005
