A thoroughly revised and updated edition adding a few chapters to make it more comprehensive. A chapter Pregnancy and Drugs would prove to be extremely useful to busy family physicians and obstetricians. Several new clinical photographs are added to make it more illustrative and helpful to diagnose various disorders. An attempt has been made to include short and crisp text of various common and some uncommon disorders with illustrations so as to make this book useful for general practitioners and even undergraduates. As this has been written by practising dermatologists for practising physicians, a special emphasis has been laid on various therapeutic modalities.
