Writing for primary care physicians, Trozak (a dermatologist in private practice), Tennenhouse (U. of California–San Francisco State Medical Center), and Russell (Temple U. School of Medicine) present a medical text that presents the basic dermatological skills that should be useful in primary care settings and diagnostic and therapeutic information for 33 commonly encountered dermatological disorders. The four chapters discussing skills cover patient history, dermatologic physical examination, indicated supporting diagnostic data, and therapy. The remainder of the chapters are grouped into sections on popular, papulosquamous, and papulo-vesicular skin lesions; epidermal, dermal, and epidermal/dermal lesions; epidermal and dermal lesions, eczematous lesions, and atrophies; pigmented, pre-malignant, and common malignant skin lesions; and vesiculo-bullous and papulo-pustular disorders.
