This is a compendium of dermatologic syndromes, describing some 716 syndromes in crisp detail with lavish color illustrations. A feature of special value is the list of carefully selected references quoted at the end of each entry to give the user ready access to definitive further reading on each syndrome. For residents and attending physicians alike, remembering and recognizing the variety of dermatologic syndromes that have been identified is a very difficult and time-consuming task. An Illustrated Dictionary of Dermatologic Syndromes provides a systematic and concise approach to the subject and is a valuable aid to both residents and attending physicians in dermatology and pediatrics. In his Foreword, Dr. Walter B. Shelley calls this, "a great book for browsing…a symphony of syndromes."
