The book is organized by symptoms and visual clues and covers 195 skin disorders, with over 800 full-color illustrations and detailed information on diagnostic criteria, skin characteristics, best laboratory tests, differential diagnosis, and characteristics of the condition in immunocompromised patients and those with darker skin colors.
