“Time is change; we measure its passage by how much things alter.”
—Nadine Gordimer

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.

The 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 Roughly 80% of the old images have been replaced by new ones and additional images have been added.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.
