“The purpose is to stimulate the neurons of established dermatologists. Residents preparing for their certification exam will find the exercise an excellent test of their mastery of dermatology. The audience is clinical dermatologists. … This is an advanced book for dermatologists interested in continuing to hone their clinical acumen and diagnostic skills.
