Handbook of Leprosy This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract This is one of those jewels: a compact book meant for dermatologists, neurologists, and other health care professionals working in the field of leprosy that clearly and concisely covers its subject. This hardcover book is well bound and well printed on good quality paper. It has beautiful and clearly focused illustrations in both color and black and white. For those who already have the third edition (1984) the references are updated to 1987, which is especially relevant in the area of treatment, ie, 14 years of follow-up results of the initial Malta multidrug clinical trial are presented. A new table presents the significant side effects of drugs used in multidrug therapy. The section concerning differential diagnosis of dermatological conditions is expanded and improved, eg, reference to the use of Kveim material for the diagnosis of sarcoidosis vs the diagnosis of Hansen's disease, has been removed. There are multiple down-to-earth suggestions http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Dermatology American Medical Association
