Description

Dermatology Made Easy 2e has been comprehensively updated but remains designed to help GPs, medical students and dermatologists diagnose skin conditions with confidence.
Diagnosis is simplified by providing a comprehensive set of tables which offer differentials by symptom, morphology, or body site – including over 500 thumbnail photos.
Once you have narrowed down the diagnosis, cross-references guide you to more detailed descriptions, and another 700 photographs, covering:

  • common infections
  • inflammatory rashes
  • non-inflammatory conditions
  • skin lesions

Every section provides consistent information on the disorder:

  • who gets it and what causes it?
  • what are the clinical features and does it cause any complications?
  • how do you diagnose it?
  • how do you treat it and how long does it take to resolve?

The book concludes with a comprehensive section on further investigations and treatment options.

Dermatology Made Easy is the ideal rapid clinical reference – guiding diagnosis, advising on clinical features and offering the best treatment options.

Printed in full colour throughout.

Index

Excellent resource
‘Great resource with pictures. I’m an ANP & this is useful for skin conditions when the patients are in the room or even when they’ve left to look up suitable terminology for writing notes. I work in a non teaching practice so I sometimes have to ‘google’ my way through consultations. This book really helps.' Amazon reviewer

Valuable
‘It's a fabulous resource. I am a pharmacist and we are increasingly expected to respond to dermatology related signs and symptoms in community pharmacies as we rapidly become the first port of call for minor ailments. I use this book every day and have been able to confidently assess most skin conditions, using this well organised and easy to use book, and therefore suggest the best course of action, whether that be symptomatic treatment with a watch and wait approach or alternatively to see their GP.' Amazon reviewer

Truly a tour-de-force
‘I am truly gobsmacked by the amount of effort that would have gone into putting a book like this together.
That the author did a remarkable job goes without saying; that she did it while doing a million other things is more or less the Amanda we have all come around to expecting; but the fact that she did this alone is what is so truly mind blowing.
I had to use it yesterday and was amazed at the logic that has gone into organising the book.' Amazon reviewer

Fantastic book

Imagine needing to use DermNetNZ & having no WiFi. Now you know why this book is a must.
‘A fantastic resource. I’m currently in a post where lots of Derm issues pop up daily, leaving me feeling very rusty as I reach back into the vault of medical school memories!

It’s well written, the pics are great (including some of people of colour - which is something that is often lacking in Dermatology teaching!) and the reference setup with the ability to search via site, characteristics or context is invaluable.

A highly recommended purchase and a resource I know I’m going to come back to again and again no matter the job role or grade.' Amazon reviewer

fabulous book
‘Very useful book, managed to identify a wound infection that had been hard to pin point, the pictures are extremely helpful, would recommend to anyone in healthcare.' Amazon reviewer

"... a perfect solution to the constant struggle that dermatology diagnosis presents to primary care physicians and other providers...
This well-formatted book covers a vast array of topics ranging from common to rare skin disorders. The pictures are immensely helpful in the understanding of various skin rashes...."“… easy to read and informative. One cannot emphasise enough the quality and comprehensive nature of the photographic content.…
As someone who was interested in dermatology even as a medical student my only regret is that this book was not around when I was a student as it would have very adequately guided me into my beloved subspecialty.”“The introduction outlines dermatological conditions by symptom, morphology and body site, providing an excellent index prior to delving into greater detail in the following chapters. The logical approach and level of detail make this text perfect for medical students, interns/residents, primary care physicians and other specialists who wish to quickly identify differential diagnoses or refresh their knowledge of dermatological conditions.”
