Nails; diagnosis, therapy, surgery, 3d ed
Nails; diagnosis, therapy, surgery, 3d ed.
Ed. by Richard K. Scher and C. Ralph Daniel III.
The first edition in the early 1990s broke ground with its emphasis on treatment, offering comprehensive, practical information for clinicians, pathologists, surgeons, cosmeticians, and the pharmaceutical industry. The third edition continues this approach in an enhanced, reader-friendly format, with expanded coverage of onycholysis and chronic paronychia and updates on cutting edge treatments. Coverage begins with nail signs and symptoms and discussion of the normal nail. Subsequent chapters are disease oriented, with discussion of diagnostic techniques, the abnormal nail, and therapeutic techniques. Abundant color photos illustrate the text. Editors Daniel (dermatology, U. of Mississippi) and Scher (dermatology, Columbia U.) are joined by four associate editors.
