A book that will be welcome to practising dermatologists everywhere, this fantastically useful new volume presents a visual encyclopedia of geriatric dermatoses that can be used by clinicians on rounds or in a reference environment. It provides a structured illustrated review of the various lesions encountered, which will make this an invaluable reference resource for all physicians dealing with older skin. It also places special emphasis on illnesses originating in other organ systems that are made manifest on the skin and often complicate the diagnostic and therapeutic picture. Robert Norman, of Tampa, Florida, USA, is an experienced geriatric dermatologist and has published several dermatology textbooks.
