This book is derived from notes taken during a dermatology residency and it represents a comprehensive yet condensed approach to a dermatology curriculum, listing every entity with only the most important and testable facts and mnemonics. There is an intimidating large amount of material for young dermatologists and other doctors with an interest in dermatology to learn, and this guide puts it all into a concise and manageable context. Further, introductions to the dermatology physical exam and dermatopathology, as well short guides describing the basics of medications, basic science, cosmetics, and surgery are included. The goal of this guide is not primarily to help with visual identification of diagnoses, but rather to help young dermatologists learn to create differential diagnoses and learn all the important facts for myriad diseases. Given its unique approach, this guide will serve new residents well in quickly adapting to a new field, and also, it will serve senior residents as quick review of all topics in preparation for in service and board examinations. In general, there are very few dermatology board review books of any kind and therefore this book will immediately have a market among dermatology students, residents, rotators, and faculty.
This guidebook is derived from the author’s notes taken during dermatology residency. The essential facts have been compressed, simplified, and organized so that the reader is reminded of the key dermatologic diagnoses and treatment approaches and provided with everything that is most important to know in caring for patients.
Dermatology Simplified: Outlines and Mnemonics organizes dermatologic conditions into outlines by clinical differential diagnosis and by pathophysiology. This style of organization allows the reader to focus on a condition while maintaining a broad understanding of its place in the big picture. Diseases are also grouped thematically to reinforce understanding in complementary ways, and high-yield notes summarize medications, cosmetics, surgery, and basic science. This algorithmic, standardized approach will increase the amount of information the reader can retain more effectively than a random strategy to learning, and will be of great use as a resource for medical students and dermatology residents diagnosing patients in clinic, senior dermatology residents studying for board exams, internal medicine and pediatrics residents learning dermatology, teachers creating educational presentations for students or residents, and practicing dermatologists seeking quick reference.
“This text is a compilation of many wonderful pearls and mnemonics. As the back cover states, the text “is derived from the author’s notes taken during dermatology residency”– the author clearly took great notes. While the book is geared toward residents, it would benefit medical students, early career dermatologists, and dermatologists preparing for their maintenance of certification; it also conveniently fits into a white coat pocket.
The book is divided into 4 parts. Part I is a “starter kit”–a summary of important clinical and histologic terms, targeting primarily first-year residents (eg, “Approaching histopathologic description”). Part II, the largest section, contains “Medical dermatology outlines” — these are nicely organized by disease category (eg, papulosquamous, vascular, neoplastic, alopecia, etc). Within each category area few testable and important points about each disease, in addition to helpful clinical pearls and memorable mnemonics. Part III is an impressive collection of lists, differential diagnoses (eg, painful tumors), and more mnemonics–my favorite is the section on “Commonly confused diseases” (those of us dealing with residents/students still gleaning dermatology’s complex lexicon will understand the value of this section). Part IV is a potpourri of high yield topics not discussed elsewhere (eg, medications, procedural dermatology, and basic science [I particularly liked the concise discussion of molecular pathways important in dermatology]); this section also contains several nice figures, presented in color.”
