This concise yet comprehensive, fully illustrated, four-colour textbook has established itself as a favourite amongst undergraduate medical students, nurses and pharmacists in practice and in training, and with general practitioners and other physicians seeking a clear and well-illustrated guide to dermatology. Since the last edition, there have been exciting advances in dermatology, both in treatment and in our understanding of the molecular biology of the diseases. The newedition includes thoroughly updated material on all common skin diseases, their clinical features, aetiology, pathology, necessary investigations and treatment. In response to developments in medical education, Clinical Dermatology has been extensively rewritten to take account of the changing structure of many undergraduate medical curricula. Problem-based learning exercises, special study module projects and problem case discussions are included.
