Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is a pictorial atlas devoted to how skin diseases clinically appear in skin of color. Physical findings, histopathology, and treatments are succinctly summarized in each chapter. The goal is to broaden dermatologists’ visual acumen on the broad spectrum of clinical presentations for common skin disorders in more pigmented skin. The audience is dermatologists.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2015)
