A unique systematic approach to dermatologic diagnosis
Guidebook to Dermatologic Diagnosis provides an innovative and methodical approach to the diagnosis of skin lesions and rashes. Centered around "The Wheel of Diagnosis" which factors in several important clinical considerations necessary to formulate an accurate diagnosis, the book is enhanced by numerous full-color images organized by clinical appearance rather than known diagnosis. This type of image grouping is specifically designed to teach readers how to think through and eventually arrive at an accurate diagnosis. Each chapter is also enhanced by tips on special testing, management, as well as the diagnostic approach. Although primarily written to be an innovative way to enhance dermatologic diagnostic skills, this unique resource can also be used at the point of care to confirm diagnosis.
