By Annette B. Wysocki on June 30, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This is sure to become a classic reference book in the field of dermatology on skin of color. Dr. Kelly and Dr. Taylor have assembled a textbook that provides a comprehensive review citing authoritative sources and cutting through some of the confusion and clutter of studies that have led to erroneous conclusions. The book provides an extensive number of tables and outstanding color photographs and illustrations to support the comprehensive review of the dermatology of skin of color. It includes sections on African-American, Asian, and Hispanic skin. The book reviews the structure, function, biology, and epidemiology of skin of color. It also reviews all aspects of various skin disorders that occur in skin of color with supporting photographs to aid in diagnosis. It has chapters on various skin conditions that have a higher prevalence in darkly pigmented skin such as keloids, vitiligo, pseudofolliculitis barbae, melasma, and pre- and post-inflammatory hyper/hypopigmentation disorders. It also reviews the diagnosis, pathology and treatment of disorders associated with skin appendages, hair, nails, sweat and sebaceous glands, skin cancer, cosmetic dermatology, pediatric dermatology, and a section on international dermatology. Dr. Kelly, Dr. Taylor and all of the contributing authors are to be congratulated on providing an outstanding contribution to the field of dermatology.

This text was helpful to me from the first day it arrived. When I changed my Pediatric practice location from New England to California, I needed to increase my knowledge base of skin conditions in various ethnic skin types. As I read through the book, I recognized lesions that I had seen but not understood in the past. I am offering my patients a higher level of expertise and better treatments for their skin disorders, epsecially those with pigmentary changes. I would recommend this book for any primary care physician with a multicultural population.

It's a good book; however, I expected more pictures. The info is detailed enough for an introductory insight into pigment skin conditions. I work in the a mixed population and wanted to use this book as a reference to show patients. It's a good book depending on ehat up need it for.
