"Each wound photograph illustrates multiple teaching points. The authors briefly describe the clinical history, differential diagnosis, the work-up that was performed, and therapies used. Numerous photographs of the same disease process demonstrate the range of clinical presentations one may encounter. This is a straightforward way to learn new approaches to treating wounds."

Praise for the First Edition
"A vast array of excellent (if at times gruesome) photographs of wounds and ulcers of all types ... This book would serve as a useful reference in an ulcer/wound management clinic... They illustrate very well the principles behind wound healing of all types. The authors are to be congratulated on the quality of this text, which is highly recommended"
