“Time is change; we measure its passage by how much things
The First Edition of this book appeared 26 years
ago (1983) and has been expanded pari passu with the major developments that
have occurred in dermatology over the past two and a half decades.
Dermatology is now one of the most sought after medical specialties because
the burden of skin disease has become enormous and the many new innovative
therapies available today attract large patient populations.
The Color Atlas and Synopsis of Clinical Dermatology
has been used by thousands of primary care physicians, dermatologists,
internists, and other health care providers principally because it
facilitates dermatologic diagnosis by providing color photographs of skin
lesions and, juxtaposed, a succinct summary outline of skin disorders as
well as the skin signs of systemic diseases.
Sixth Edition has been extensively revised, rewritten, and expanded by the
addition of new sections. Roughly 80% of the old images have been replaced
by new ones and additional images have been added. There is a complete
update of etiology, pathogenesis, management and therapy and there is now an
online version. The previous edition of the Atlas has been translated
into seven languages.
