A unique, highly visual and systematic approach to dermatologic diagnosis

Guidebook to Dermatologic Diagnosis provides an innovative and methodical approach to the diagnosis of skin lesions and rashes. The mainstay of diagnosis in dermatology is the physical exam which rests on visual diagnosis. This resource classifies dermatoses on morphologic grounds with diseases that look the same grouped together. Centered around “The Wheel of Diagnosis” which factors in several important clinical considerations necessary to formulate an accurate diagnosis, the book is enhanced by numerous images organized by clinical appearance rather than known diagnosis. This type of image grouping is specifically designed to teach readers how to think through and eventually arrive at an accurate diagnosis.
