Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is an excellent book on how to manage difficult-to-control skin diseases in the pediatric population. … The audience is dermatologists, but pediatricians would benefit from reading this book as well. … I highly recommend this book. It contains practical, valuable clinical information on managing skin diseases that do not respond to the usual approaches.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2014)
