Dr. Wolverton has created what will long be a classic of dermatologic texts. This book begins with basic pharmacologic principles and covers all of the major classes of drugs that are used to treat skin diseases including rarely used compounds such as clofazimine. Each drug is discussed from chemical structure to pharmacokinetics to mechanism of action, etc., with handy little tables that nicely supplement the text. The clinical use sections discuss findings of key medical articles and a section on off-label uses discusses case reports of the drugs' use in rarer conditions. Dosages and weight-based dosing tables are included.
There are good sections on other topical compounds (sunscreens, cosmetics, insect repellants). Phototherapy with psoralens and photopheresis have good reviews as well. Several chapters discuss the side effects of major drug classes.
This book is excellent all the way around and is not only a good reference for practicing dermatologists but is helpful also as a stand-up text for residents to read all the way through.

The much thinner first edition of this book has been the definitive source for dermatology therapy for ten years. Now, a revised, more comprehensive version details all aspects of drug therapy for dermatologists, and other physicians treating cutaneous disorders. From topical agents to systemic therapies commonly used to treat skin disease to cosmetic agents, this book is all inclusive. A standardized format presents the different drugs in a consistent fashion and tables emphasize important drug interactions and present monitoring guidelines for commonly and uncommonly used medications.
In addition to listing and reviewing FDA approved indications for medications, commonly used "off-label" indications are also listed and the literature supporting their use is given.
Sections of the book are also dedicated to less commonly discussed topics around drug therapy, such as pharmacoeconomics, FDA approval process, and medicolegal issues surrounding drug therapy.
This will be an importantant resource for dermatologists, dermatology residents, medical students, and all physicians who treat skin disease.

an indispensable guide. extremely high yield for dermatology boards review. i would suggest getting together with your fellow residents, splitting the work of outlining a chapter each week, and then having the handouts to study from while you are in chicago.
