An Atlas of the Commoner Diseases focuses on dermatoses most frequently observed in the routine outpatient practice. The book provides abbreviated clinical descriptions, as well as outline of treatment. The book first offers information on the differential diagnosis and treatment of acne, alopecia areata, chilblains, and dermatitis artefacta. The diagnosis and treatment of dermatitis herpetiformis, lichenified dermatitis, dermatitis medicamentosa, and other variations of dermatitis are also presented. The text also presents the prognosis and treatment of the different variations of eczema and epidermophytosis. The manuscript offers information on the localization, clinical manifestations, and treatment of epithelioma and its variants, erysipeloid, erythema induratum, erythema iris, erythema nodusum, and glossitis. The text ponders on the etiology and treatment of herpes zoster, impetigo, kerion, lichen planus, lupus vulgaris, and psoriasis. The manuscript is a dependable reference for readers interested in the commoner disease.
