Herbert Goodheart, Dr. Mercedes Gonzalez
Dr. Goodheart’s award-winning and highly regarded guide to skin disorders has been fully updated in its 4th Edition, and now includes a separate section on common pediatric complaints. More than 900 high-quality illustrations provide a comprehensive visual guide to the vast majority of skin conditions you’re likely to see. Clear descriptions of specific distinguishing features help you reach an accurate diagnosis, and similar or “look-alike” conditions are presented for easy comparison. All healthcare workers who encounter disorders of the skin will find this practical resource invaluable for dermatologic diagnosis and management.
New co-author Dr. Mercedes E. Gonzalez shares her expertise in an all-new pediatric section , covering birthmarks, acne, eczema, superficial bacterial and viral infections, hair and nail disorders, cutaneous manifestations of systemic disease, neurocutaneous syndromes, and much more.
Additional new chapters cover darker skin tones, dermoscopy, hyperhidrosis, and teledermatology.
Hundreds of new, full-color photos and more information on ethnically and racially diverse populations, as well as aging populations brings this must-have resource fully up to date.
Thoroughly updated content includes the latest information on over-the-counter and prescription medications, as well as recent “biologics” that have great potential in the targeted treatment of many immunologic and neoplastic disorders.
Step-by-step descriptions of basic dermatologic procedures and a formatted approach to each disease help you find what you need quickly and use it immediately in your practice.
