"This is the BEST edition of Fitzpatrick's Dermatology in General Medicine. Every chapter has been completely rewritten and updated; many new chapters cover new topics such as atypical melanocytic nevi, oncogenes, and epidemiology; and therapy, which in previous editions was not extensively covered, now has over 300 pages devoted to therapeutics, surgery, and laser. Clinical color photographs and microscopic color photographs of histology appear in every chapter, a big improvement over the older editions that had black-and-white pictures.
