price comparison



Product Description A visual companion to one of the most ambitious texts to be published in dermatology for some years, this is a comprehensive guide to 284 dermatologic conditions by means of up to 4000 color photographs. These photographs are used as examples of each of the multiple diagnostic possibilities, with an emphasis on unusual presentations of common clinical entities, as well as common presentations of rare and unusual disorders. Readers who use this Atlas in conjunction with the separate compendium of diagnostic categorization will be able to fine-tune their visual diagnostic skills at the same time as their organizational thought processes in an instructive and enjoyable intellectual and clinical exercise. This unique high-quality road map through clinical dermatology should form part of the core library of every practicing dermatologist. Review "Volume 2 contains more than 4000 color illustrations arranged in exactly the same way, following the differential diagnostic possibilities. For example, acneiform eruptions are covered by 65 pictures and 5 pages of text with several hundred references." "This book is the distillation of many years of resident teaching conferences offered by Drs Schneidermann and Grossman [...] I can only say in admiration that this group of residents has with certainty come away with an incredible amount of knowledge. I have never seen a book with more data per running inch or gram than A Clinician's Guide to Dermatologic Differential Diagnosis. The references are both current and classic, and from standard sources [...] as well as more exotic sites [...] In addition, the illustrations are both high quality and extensive, so one gets a feeling for the variation of a given disease, rather than seeing just one pristine example." (ABOUT SET) Walter Burgdorf, MD, Tutzing Germany. (J AM ACAD DERMATOL: Feb 2007) "'Volume 2: The Atlas' presents an impressive display of colour photographs of some of the conditions listed in Volume 1. [...] The accompanying atlas is a remarkable collection of over 4000 clinical images. This includes multiple examples of rare conditions, to display varying presentations." "This book is most likely to be of use to the practicing dermatologist when faced with a challenging patient, and searching for an exhaustive list of possible differential diagnoses." Dr Helen Saunders, Victoria, Australia. (Australasian Journal of Dermatology Vol 48 Issue 2. Dec 2006)
