This book helps prescribers and patients make rational decisions about drug treatment while considering known risks and potential unwanted effects. This third edition includes new classes of drugs as well as information on updated guidelines for prescribing and monitoring established drugs.
The best-selling text has been completely revised and revitalised in this fifth edition, with the authors once again encouraging general practitioners, medical students, general physicians and early stage dermatology specialist trainees and interns to relish the unique challenge of diagnosing and treating skin conditions.
Many texts deal with how to diagnose the straightforward melanomas of the skin, but there are also many less common skin tumors that a clinician needs to be aware of because these are still likely to be encountered at some point in a clinical setting and many of them have serious implications.
This is a highly illustrated guide to the diagnosis and management of nail conditions in children. With new material on genetics and on developments such as dermoscopy, it will be invaluable as a reliable clinical reference for both dermatologists and pediatricians, as well as those in family practice.
The ethos of this bestselling text is that however much or little you know about skin disease you can always arrive at the right diagnosis. The secret is to examine the surface of the rash or skin lesion which will help you classify the clinical features correctly.
