Abstract This new edition of the Harrison-edited book, a long-established, authoritative, and thoroughly modern text, contains for the first time a section devoted to "Diseases Affecting the Skin," albeit "limitations of space confined it to a brief discussion of the more pertinent aspects of dermatology." In the twenty pages allotted to this section, Donald Pillsbury skillfully presents the material so that the alert practitioner may quickly identify a lesion as representing either a common or an uncommon disease, banal or serious, a local disturbance or a manifestation of a systemic disease. He mentions representative examples of the various groups and discusses briefly essential clinical characteristics and special procedures, such as the biopsy and the Tsanck test, but he relies most heavily, in ten of the twenty pages, on a presentation of the fundamentals such as applied anatomy, pathology and physiology, morphologic patterns of disease, and history-taking with its related factors http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png A.M.A. Archives of Dermatology American Medical Association
