Abstract

Dermatology Made Easy provides a concise, pocket-sized reference guide to any clinician with a focus on the practice of dermatology. The book is authored by associate professor Amanda Oakley, with whom some readers will be familiar from the hugely successful DermNetNZ.org resource. The author combines more than 3 decades of clinical experience with finesse in easy-to-digest information in this valuable resource. With a focus on high-yield dermatologic complaints, this book masterfully selects topics of importance and directs readers to the free online resource for further guidance or details on more complex topics. The opening chapter introduces readers to a systematic diagnostic approach with a differential diagnostic tool categorized by symptoms, morphology, and body site, highlighting patterns of a disease and predilections for certain body sites to assist with diagnosis. This diagnostic approach will be new to some; however, it is well discussed in the text and will enhance many clinicians' mastery of dermatology concepts.
