About this book

This book is devoted exclusively to differential diagnosis in pediatric dermatology. It covers the full range of relevant conditions: inherited skin disorders; nevi; viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections; acne; allergic diseases; autoimmune skin disorders; connective tissue diseases; tumors; and miscellaneous conditions. Each comparison addresses the differential diagnosis between two (or occasionally three or four) dermatological conditions, containing between two and six images and a short text emphasizing the clinical differences between the diseases in question. At the end of each chapter, a summary highlights one or two characteristics essential for the differential diagnosis. The author is an expert who, since 1982, has been responsible for a column devoted to the differential diagnosis of pediatric dermatology in the European Journal of Pediatric Dermatology. The volume will represent an ideal tool for pediatric dermatologists, pediatricians, and GPs, and will help them in the diagnostic process.​

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The purpose is to aid pediatric dermatologists in generating accurate differential diagnoses when presented with skin conditions in children. … This is a useful introductory book to pediatric dermatology. It provides an accurate and easy approach to assess similarly appearing dermatoses with reasonable confidence of achieving the correct diagnosis. Readers could quickly look up a differential to confirm a diagnosis, assuming they are knowledgeable enough to identify the appropriate type of condition(s).” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2013)
