An Atlas of the Commoner Skin Diseases, Fourth Edition presents a collection of the dermatoses most commonly seen in the routine of out-patient practice. This book includes in each plate abbreviated clinical descriptions, the important differential diagnoses, and outlines of treatment. Organized into 148 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the prevailing form of acne vulgaris in its papulo-pustular stage. This text then illustrates the main characteristics of a developed and progressive patch of alopecia areata. Other chapters consider the case of acute seborrhoeic dermatitis of the scalp and face, which is the commonest of all skin diseases. This book discusses as well the cutaneous complications of varicose veins and the case of occupational or trade eczema. The final chapter deals with the rare condition of tylosis, which is a bilateral and symmetrical congenital horny thickening of the skin of the palms and soles. This book is a valuable resource for dermatologists.
