Written for both dermatologists and primary care physicians, this compact guide is designed to be user friendly rather than encyclopedic and serves as a quick reference guide or a starting point for differential diagnosis of dermatologic diseases. It starts with a definition list of lesion morphology, including the more subtle features and photographs, followed by lists of diagnoses based on clinical features and morphology, starting with the most severe and common, including a description of the lesion, distribution and location, characteristics and symptoms, associations wit systemic diseases, and treatment and diagnostic pearls. It closes with a list of specific syndromes and medical conditions with dermatologic features, a glossary of acronyms and references.
