Description

Designed for dermatologists, dermatopathologists, and trainees of all levels, Dermatology: Visual Recognition and Case Reviews is a brand-new resource that aims to maximize your skill at recognizing diseases by visual presentation. Its unique dedication to rich images enhances your learning experience, ability to understand and visualize key concepts, and retention of information, while case reviews offer examples of the framework that can be used when approaching a patient.

  • Key difference pages for each section/subsection enable you to quickly compare and contrast different diseases that can look similar but are distinguishable.
  • Case reviews hone in on specifics when evaluating a patient.
  • Boasts high-quality clinical and pathological images for nearly all entities, plus useful body schematic shows likely distribution areas.
