This quick-reference diagnostic aid uses clinical photographs to illustrate differences in common dermatologic conditions which may present similarly. It compares conditions (for example Vitiligo vs. Pityriasis Versiscolor) on facing pages, with 4-5 full color illustrations, "compare and contrast" tables, and charts to help identify each. Summary boxes offer brief lists and commentary on similar, but less likely, diagnoses that should be considered, and also any cross-referencing. * Provides detailed text and abundant full-color illustrations. * Covers the most common dermatologic disorders encountered in everyday practice. * Includes "compare and contrast" tables for every diagnostic dilemma. * Organizes contents in a clinically relevant format by body region. * Heavily illustrated with more than 550 full-color clinical photographs and tables.
DERMATOLOGY The modern era of dermatology began in Vienna soon after
1850 , as Hebra and his colleagues developed new cytologic techniques that
permitted detailed microscopic study of both normal and diseased dermal tissue .

This book investigates the relationship between developments in the science of genetics and the clinical practice of medicine in the United States. Rushton shows how physicians first doubted, then slowly accepted, the relevance of Mendel's work for human heredity. The modern synthesis of cytology and genetics, which explained the inheritance of specific characters by the segregation of genes on the chromosomes of egg and sperm, was widely discussed in the medical community by 1910. By 1915, physicians began to recognize that the transmission of such human disorders as haemophilia, Huntington chorea, and Tay-Sachs disease fit the Mendelian model.
