Book Preface

I am flattered and humbled that the first edition of the book has been so well received and it is with this in mind that I have tried to make this new edition even more helpful and practical than the first edition. In this updated version I have added more than 300 images and I have tried to include any omissions, correct any errors and include any new treatments since the first edition was released.

As I wrote in the previous preface, the idea of writing this book arose when I was studying for my dermatology board examination. At the time, I was unable to find a comprehensive study guide containing both high yield text and corresponding clinical images. I ended up using multiple textbooks, atlases, and study guides to review for the exam, which proved to be quite challenging and time consuming. My goal was to create a practical review book with concise yet thorough text along with high-yield corresponding clinical images. Important concepts throughout the book are either underlined or highlighted in the text and tables are placed in as many chapters as possible for easy reading.

Another unique aspect of this book is the discussion of life after the dermatology board exam. Medical training, as it exists today, does not emphasize important post-residency concepts such as understanding the elements of a physician employment contract, proper coding and documentation, and choosing between different types of malpractice insurance. Most of us have had to learn this on our own without a specific resource to guide us, which is why I have included this information in the last chapter.

Ultimately, this book is intended as a board preparatory guide for dermatologists who are preparing for initial certification or recertification. Moreover, the topics addressed in this book are highly relevant to daily practice and may serve as an excellent reference for physicians in both dermatology and primary care. In summary, it is hoped that this will fill a real need for all dermatologists as an essential board review book and provide an indispensable resource for all physicians.
