Dermatology Lecture Notes 10th Edition PDF Free Download
In this, the tenth edition of Lecture Notes: Dermatology , we have updated the text, focusing on recent advances in the knowledge of skin diseases and their treatment. We have also asked a junior doctor working in an acute hospital in the UK to help us add a new chapter on dermatological emergencies. Numerous tables of salient points provide ready reference but, as in previous editions, we have attempted to create a ‘ user – friendly ’ readability. We hope that the book will be of value not only to medical students, but also to general practitioners, and nurses involved in the care of dermatology patients. We also hope that exposure to Lecture Notes: Dermatology will stimulate a deeper interest in this important medical specialty. We are indebted to the late Dr Imrich Sarkany, and to Professor Charles Calnan, under whose guidance we both learned dermatology.
We thank our colleagues in the Dermatology Department in Leicester: Drs Anton Alexandroff, Ian Anderson and Robert Burd, Professor Richard Camp and Drs Karen Harman, Ingrid Helbling, Peter Hutchinson, Graham Johnston, Alex Milligan, Joy Osborne and numerous junior colleagues for creating and sustaining such a stimulating environment in which to work. It is a pleasure to have been joined for this edition by Matthew Graham – Brown, who has provided an excellent chapter on dermatological emergencies, for which we thank him very much. We are especially grateful to all the med ical students who, over many years, have reminded us of the importance of clarity in communication, and that teaching should be a stimulating and enjoyable experience for everyone concerned. Finally, we thank the staff at Wiley – Blackwell who have helped us through the editing and production stages.
