"A great textbook for medical students to tackle the extensive spectrum of clinical presentations in dermatology. The greatest assets to this book are the high quality colour photographs that are crucial in diagnosing dermatological disease. The text is concise and structured covering incidence, clinical features, differential diagnosis, management and prognosis. The books are conveniently pocket size, ideal for the clinical setting. The book ends with a range of picture based self-assessment questions great for MCQ revision." Medical Student, Edinburgh University, November 2004 "The In Focus series are useful 'trigger texts' i.e. they give enough information so that you want to read further or continue your learning on the internet. The colours have been used nicely, with realistic print colours of patients, instruments and slides. The set out of the books are ideal with good, quick reference contents, making the series ideal for students in Clinics and/or ward rounds." Medical Student, UK, January 2005
