High-quality color photographs enhance this completely updated, practical guide to the diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases in neonates, infants, children, and adolescents. The text features a clinically oriented approach to pediatric skin disorders and includes a differential diagnosis index.

Appendix information incorporates a formulary for common dermatologic conditions. 500 full-color photographs, 2 full-color line drawings, and 23 one-color line drawings enhance the lucid, practical text. A Problem-Oriented Differential Diagnosis Index covers both the front- and end-papers, offering a convenient index for busy practitioners who encounter a difficult or unclear case.
