About the Author

M. Alan Menter, Baylor Research Institute, Texas Dermatology Associates, Dallas, Texas, USA


This is a very good introductory book for diagnosing and managing patients with psoriasis. The concepts are explained well. The immune dysregulation that exists in psoriasis is easy to understand. Readers are not overwhelmed with the intricacies of every cytokine and receptor interaction involved. Nice color diagrams outline the proposed initiation of the psoriatic cycle in the skin. The genetic role is simply outlined without being pedantic.This is an up-to-date reference that provides beginning dermatologists with a good foundation for understanding psoriasis. (3 stars) -- Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center) Doody's Review Service
